Senators cancel Monday practice after Connor Brown, Gambrell put in COVID protocols


The Ottawa Senators have cancelled Monday’s practice a day after defenceman Nick Holden and associate coach Jack Capuano were placed on the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol list.

The Senators said the decision to cancel Monday’s practice was made “for precautionary reasons.”

Holden and Capuano were placed on the protocol list Sunday, a day after Ottawa played a home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

They joined forward Austin Watson, who entered into COVID-19 protocol Friday.

Holden, 34, has one assist in 10 games in his first season with Ottawa, his 11th in the NHL. He has 45 goals and 144 points in 523 regular-season games with the Columbus Blue Jackets, Colorado Avalanche, New York Rangers, Bruins, Vegas Golden Knights and Senators.

Capuano, 55, has been on Ottawa’s staff since June 2019. He was the head coach of the New York Islanders from 2010-17.

The Senators recalled defenceman Erik Brannstrom from Belleville of the American Hockey League to replace Holden on the roster.

Ottawa is scheduled to visit the Boston Bruins on Tuesday.
