Detroit Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocol on Wednesday night.
Bertuzzi is the NHL's lone unvaccinated player.
Detroit defeated the Seattle Kraken 4-3 in a shootout Wednesday night. After the game, head coach Jeff Blashill told the media that Bertuzzi is feeling fine and will be in COVID protocol for the next 10 days, missing five games.
The 26-year-old Canadian is having a hot start to his sixth season in the NHL, scoring nine goals and adding nine assists over 20 games.
Due to his unvaccinated status, Bertuzzi is unable to travel across the border and play any games in Canada.
