NHL Statement On COVID-19 Test Results For The Montreal Canadiens

NEW YORK (June 18, 2021) – The National Hockey League today released the following statement:

“This morning, we became aware that a test administered yesterday in Las Vegas on Montreal Canadiens Head Coach Dominique Ducharme indicated a presumptive positive result for the COVID-19 virus that was confirmed on further testing today. Coach Ducharme has been partially vaccinated with his second shot administered less than two weeks ago, on June 9. Per NHL COVID Protocols, Coach Ducharme was immediately isolated from the team. All tests administered to the Players, other coaches and hockey staff from both yesterday and today have returned uniformly negative results. The Canadiens organization has, and will continue to follow, all guidelines aimed at protecting the health and safety of its Players, staff and community at large as set by the NHL, the Canadian Federal Government, the Quebec Provincial Government, and national and provincial health agencies.”

The fix is in. Is there any boundaries that Bettman will not go to control the outcome of these playoffs?

Feels like it, dog.  The Dives’ HC Bednar had irregularities in his tests, but he was still able to coach that same night of the game. 

Here’s hoping Ducharme is behind the bench for tonight’s game.  If not, as if the Midget Shrew of a commish couldn’t get any more vitriol his way, there will be a time when he can’t even step inside Centre Bell without fearing for his safety.  Clarence Campbell dared and he got showered with enough debris to fill a landfill.

legorocks99 on youtube reported that Bergevin has announced that Richardson and Burrows will be behind the bench for tonight’s all-important Game Three.  He didn’t quote his source so I will see it to believe it.
