The New York Rangers placed head coach Gerard Gallant in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, the team announced Sunday.

The Rangers previously placed Ryan Reaves, Julien Gauthier, and Igor Shesterkin in the protocol on Jan. 6.

Kris Knoblauch will assume coaching duties in Gallant's absence. Knoblauch is the head coach of the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack. He previously served as head coach of the Rangers for six games last season when ex-coach David Quinn was placed in COVID-19 protocol. Knoblauch went 4-2, including a 9-0 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers.
