Islanders have Barry Trotz and Ryan Pulock as COVID protocol participants
The New York Islanders put Ryan Pulock, the defenseman, and Barry Trotz, as head coaches in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol.
Trotz, at 59, was not able to participate in the team’s 3-2 overtime victory against the Edmonton Oilers Jan. 1 after his mother’s death.
The Islanders haven’t played since then, and they will be back on the ice Thursday night against the New Jersey Devils.
Trotz is currently in his fourth season with The Isles. He has compiled a record of 125-79-30, which includes 10-12-6 this season.
Pulock, 27 years old, has two assists in 12 games. In the 302 games that Pulock, 27, has played since 2013, the Islanders drafted his with the 15th pick.
