The Toronto Maple Leafs held forward William Nylander out of the lineup against the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday after he was exposed to a possible case of COVID-19 outside the team, the club announced.

Nylander is isolating and his status will be re-evaluated tomorrow pending the results of further testing.

After consulting with the NHL, the game went on as planned. Forward Alexander Barabanov took Nylander's place in the lineup and earned his first NHL point by adding an assist during the 3-2 victory.
