Patrick Kane is among a trio of Chicago Blackhawks players missing Sunday's game against the Detroit Red Wings while in COVID-19 protocol.

Kane didn't take part in the pregame warmup and was ultimately ruled out.

The Blackhawks placed the superstar winger in the protocol Saturday along with forward Ryan Carpenter and defenseman Erik Gustafsson, who were both removed from the list Sunday morning.

However, forward Jujhar Khaira and blue-liner Riley Stillman, as well as assistant coach Marc Crawford, landed in protocol Sunday evening and aren't available against the Red Wings.

Kane has gotten off to a strong start offensively this season, producing a goal and four assists over his first five games.
