A Colorado Avalanche player tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, the club announced Thursday.

"The player has been at home in isolation since the first symptoms appeared, has recovered, and is back to normal. The Avalanche have notified anyone who has had known close contact with the athlete," a statement said.

Two Ottawa Senators players tested positive for the virus last week.

The NHL initially instructed players to self-quarantine through March 27 before extending that directive to April 4.

The league paused its season on March 12 amid the outbreak.
