The Bruins announced Friday that one of their players tested positive for COVID-19, but that the same player has undergone two subsequent tests that have come back negative and that he remains asymptomatic.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Some Bruins have returned to Warrior Ice Arena this week for voluntary limited workouts, and the team says that every player who has showed up so far has returned negative test results.

This was the first known positive test by a Bruins player.

Here is the team's statement in full:

Phase 2 of the NHL's Return to Play Plan requires all players to be tested for COVID-19 prior to using the team's facilities. As part of this process the Bruins were advised that a player tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The player underwent two subsequent tests, and both returned negative. The player remains asymptomatic. The Bruins will continue to follow CDC recommendations and adhere to the NHL's protocol. 

All Bruins players who have returned to this point during Phase 2 have now returned negative test results.

The Bruins, in conjunction with the National Hockey League, are providing these details in an effort to be transparent and will provide no further information at this time.
