The Philadelphia Flyer's upcoming games against the New Jersey Devils were postponed because the Devils are dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak.
Then the same news started to hit the Philadelphia Flyers with Justin Braun and Travis Sanheim going on the Flyers COVID-19 list.
Now they'll be joined by the captain.
The Flyers just announced that Claude Giroux has been placed on the COVID-19 list after it was announced that tonight's game against the Washington Capitals was canceled.
More details to come.
Claude Giroux and Justin Braun have been added to the NHL COVID-19 protocol.

Flyers now have 3 players on COVID protocol list: Claude Giroux, Justin Braun and Travis Sanheim.— Jordan Hall (@JHallNBCS) February 9, 2021
Justin Braun has a 5-year-old. Claude Giroux has a 1-year-old. They've been added to the @NHL protocol list. They'll have to quarantine away from their kids. Be grateful they opted to play. Don't complain if there's a pause. Their families' health matters just as much. #Flyers— Russ Joy (@JoyOnBroad) February 9, 2021
