The New York Islanders placed head coach Barry Trotz and defenseman Ryan Pulock in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Tuesday.
Trotz, 59, missed the team's 3-2 overtime win against the Edmonton Oilers on Jan. 1 following the death of his mother.
The Islanders have not played since then and are scheduled to return to the ice Thursday night at home against the New Jersey Devils.
Trotz is in his fourth season with the Isles and has compiled a 125-79-30 record, including 10-12-6 this season.
Pulock, 27, has two assists in 12 games this season. He has 127 points (33 goals, 94 assists) in 302 games since the Islanders drafted him with the 15th overall pick in 2013.
