The NHL recorded 43 positive COVID-19 tests during the second phase of its return-to-play plan, the league announced Monday.

Over 600 players voluntarily reported to team facilities since June 8 and 4,932 tests were administered. Of those 600 players, 30 returned positive tests.

The league is also aware of 13 players who tested positive while not reporting during Phase 2.

Seven players who were taking part in Phase 2 tested positive during the last week, while one player who didn't report tested positive.

All players who tested positive have self-isolated and followed proper safety protocols. The NHL will continue to test players and provide weekly updates after Phase 3 kicked off on Monday morning.
