An unnamed player on the Pittsburgh Penguins tested positive for the coronavirus but has since recovered and is feeling well, the team announced Wednesday.

"The Pittsburgh Penguins were advised today that a player tested positive for the COVID-19 virus," the team said in a statement. "The player is not in Pittsburgh and has been in isolation at his home since first experiencing symptoms. He is recovered and feeling well. Those in close contact with the player leading up to his diagnosis have been notified."

Nine players have now tested positive for the coronavirus since the NHL season was suspended March 12. All have since recovered.

The NHL plans to continue its season this summer by staging a 24-team playoff split by conference between two hub cities.
