Colorado Avalanche Lose Another Goalie For 'Weeks'

Colorado Avalanche netminder Devan Dubnyk will be out of the lineup for at least two weeks after the goalie has tested positive for COVID-19. This is according to Denver Post's Mike Chambers and has been confirmed by Avs head coach Jared Bednar.
Dubnyk drove home to his place in San Jose, where he will quarantine comfortably. According to his coach, once the quarantine is over he will drive back to Denver to join his teammates. Dubnyk joins PK Subban as active positive cases of COVID, and we certainly wish the best health possible for both players.

The Avs acquired Dubnyk for some crease insurance as last playoffs we saw them use their third-string goaltender for multiple playoff games so this news is the farthest thing from ideal for the team. The Avs have dealt with COVID a lot recently as their number one goaltender Philipp Grubauer tested positive four days after the trade for Dubnyk went down and just returned to the lineup on April 30th.
