NHL: the nature of the injuries will be hidden

LNH: la nature des blessures sera cachée

Because of the pandemic of the COVID-19, the national hockey League (NHL) and its players Association agreed that the teams could not disclose the nature of an injury suffered by a player.

It is, therefore, to say that it will be impossible to know if a player is absent because he has contracted the virus or if it is because he is actually injured.

“This policy has been adopted by respect for the right of a player to the medical confidentiality, said the NHL in a statement released on Twitter.”

“During the phases 3 and 4, the League will continue to announce on a regular basis if players were declared positive at the COVID-19, without disclosing their identity or their team.”
