The NHL has postponed the next three games on the Colorado Avalanche's schedule after a third Avalanche player entered COVID-19 protocols, the league announced Friday.

The Avalanche canceled their morning skate Friday after a COVID-19 test came back positive from Thursday's testing. Colorado goaltender Philipp Grubauer reportedly tested positive earlier this week and joined defenseman Bowen Byram on the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list.

Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar said Wednesday he expects Grubauer to miss "more than 14 days."

Colorado was scheduled to play the Los Angeles Kings on Friday and Sunday before facing the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday. The league expects the Avalanche to re-open team facilities on April 21 and return to action against the Blues the following night.
