FLYERS CARTER HART FLIPS OUT ON NHL COVID RULE: ‘IT’S A JOKE’!

By Jenny Masters

Before their loss to the Ducks in Anaheim late Tuesday night, the Flyers were notified that captain Claude Giroux and top-pairing defenseman Ivan Provorov tested positive for COVID, and were pulled in the middle of a team meeting on Tuesday morning.

Adding those two key players to the duo of Nick Seeler and Jackson Cates — who were already in the league’s protocol — was not enough to postpone the game. According to head coach Mike Yeo, all four players are asymptomatic.

“It’s tough, for sure,” goalie Carter Hart said.

“Guys are testing positive with no symptoms or mild symptoms. I mean, the league’s got to find a way to change that. We’re either going to keep playing shorthanded all season long or games are going to keep getting postponed. I think it’s a joke. It’s got to change.”
