Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos was one of five players added to the NHL’s COVID-19 list Friday, a day after he was unable to play in a 5-2 loss to Florida.
The Lightning had listed Stamkos as day-to-day with a lower-body injury.
The Philadelphia Flyers now have seven players on the list with the additions of defenseman Oskar Lindblom and forward Scott Laughton. Lindblom returned for the playoffs this past summer after being diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer, in December 2019.
The Flyers have been off since playing on Sunday. Their schedule is postponed through Thursday, when they’re set to host the New York Rangers.
Philadelphia is then scheduled to play the Boston Bruins on Feb. 21 in one of two outdoor games to be played on Lake Tahoe. Arizona Coyotes forward John Hayden and Detroit Red Wings goalie Calvin Pickard also were added to the COVID-19 list.
