Jonathan Toews is confident that he'll play in the season opener. “It’s not my decision, but I don’t think that’s up in the air," Toews said.

Nathan MacKinnon has tested positive for COVID-19. We already knew MacKinnon was in the COVID protocol, but that's not the same as having a confirmed positive test given that players can be put in the protocol for other reasons. The good news is that MacKinnon is asymptomatic. He'll still miss at least Wednesday's game though.
