Philipp Grubauer tests positive for Covid-19



Philipp Grubauer

Ugh. Bad news: the Avs player who tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday is goalie Philipp Grubauer.

Assuming his protocol is the same as Bo Bryam’s, Grubauer will need to quarantine for 10 days.

Obviously, Devan Dubnyk will be playing more now.

Superstreak Bonus!

Hope he didn’t get it from Byram because if he did then we might head for the same circus as Vancouver..


WOW – maybe a couple of extra days off wasn’t such a great idea – but image where we’d be if we didn’t have Dubnyk – fingers crossed he plays up to his potential or it’s going to be a loooong 10 days!


AD- Hindsight’s 20/20 but weren’t you asking a couple weeks ago why the team hadn’t been vaccinated yet despite being eligible in CO? If COVID knocks out more players in the next week or so this is gonna be a disaster that was totally preventable. Any way to figure out what the delay was for?

I’m wondering if he tests negative for 3 days straight if he can’t avoid the quarantine. I’ve read that there has been some false positives (albeit not common).


Guess Grub is going to get that rest they wanted for him.
Hope he is well.


This sucks, I hope it doesn’t upset the apple cart. On the flip side, I have faith in Grubauer that he will overcome and not bat an eye. We can keep winning with Dubbie in the meantime, not too worried.


Of all the players……. I was hoping it was a depth guy.

You’re a little late for April Fools AD 😏


A late season oh no Is part and parcel with this team. An of course moment if you will.


Here we go again 😳😳😳😳😳 I hope no more professional athletes die from COVID
