There’s no word yet on if Turris himself has returned a positive test, or if it’s to do with any kind of contract tracing.

Only one other player from the Oilers has been on the list since the start of the season, and that was Jesse Puljujarvi who returned a false positive test in February. He was placed on the list on Feb. 11, and removed two days later when he didn’t produce another positive test.
