He told broadcast Darren Pang that he wasn't feeling well in mid-March and that medical professionals initially thought he had pneumonia.

The NHL paused its season on March 12, one day after it was announced that several NBA players contracted COVID-19. Many NHL clubs share home arenas with NBA teams.

All of the major professional leagues and the NCAA either put events on pause or canceled them due to coronavirus.

The league has announced if and when the season will resume.
