The New York Rangers placed forward Kaapo Kakko on the COVID-19 list Monday, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.

Kakko's Type 1 diabetes could make him more prone to complications if he contracted COVID-19, but Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton said the 19-year-old is "fine," according to The Athletic's Rick Carpiniello.

Being on the COVID-19 list doesn't necessarily mean a player has the virus.

The 2019 second overall pick has tallied two goals and no assists in eight games this season.
