For the second time this year, Jesse Puljujarvi’s Finnish team has entered a COVID-19 quarantine.
According to Sportsnet’s Mark Spector, the team will be in a 10-day quarantine with no hockey activities following a positive COVID-19 test on the roster.
On Oct. 16, Karpat Oulu was forced into quarantine following a positive COVID test.
Puljujarvi had inked a two-year deal with the Oilers the week prior to that first quarantine and will re-join the Edmonton club when the NHL resumes play.
He’s had another solid start to his season this year having scored six goals and 10 points in 13 games, but ran into some trouble yesterday. Puljujarvi received a five and a 10 minute penalty and was ejected from a game against HIFK for kneeing an opposing player.
