The NHL has approved a three-game postponement for the COVID-strapped Ottawa Senators, beginning with their Tuesday night game at New Jersey, multiple outlets reported.

The Senators currently have nine players — and an associate coach — in the league’s COVID-19 protocol.

The league also will postpone Ottawa’s home game against Nashville on Thursday, and Saturday’s contest vs. the New York Rangers, per the reports.

Ottawa is coming off a 4-0 loss to Calgary on Sunday.
