The NHL postponed Tuesday night’s contest between New Jersey and the host Pittsburgh Penguins due to COVID-19 issues within the Devils’ organization.

A makeup date has not been established. The Devils’ game against Montreal on Thursday already was postponed due to the Canadiens shutting down team activities.

Devils defenseman P.K. Subban was placed in the COVID-19 protocol on Saturday.

In addition to Subban, captain Nico Hischier, fellow forward Jesper Boqvist and defensemen Ryan Graves and Christian Jaros were in the protocol already. Additionally, forward Jesper Bratt was a late scratch Saturday at Detroit because of a non-COVID illness.

In all, 10 players were missing Saturday for various reasons, including injured goaltenders Mackenzie Blackwood and Jonathan Bernier.

As of Monday, the Penguins were a team that had no players in the protocol.
