Capitals scrapper Tom Wilson replaces Alex Ovechkin at NHL All-Star Game - Sportsnet

A replacement for Ovechkin was necessitated by his being placed into COVID-19 protocol after testing positive on Wednesday. Ovechkin is expected to miss the entire weekend.

As a result of the test and being placed in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol, Ovechkin will also miss Wednesday night’s game against the Edmonton Oilers. The team did not immediately provide further details on his condition.
