MONTREAL (AP) — Canadiens interim coach Dominique Ducharme says he remains symptom-free two days after testing positive for COVID-19.
Ducharme hopes to be back behind bench during Montreal’s Stanley Cup semifinals series against Vegas.
Ducharme spoke from an undisclosed location during a 12-minute video conference call with reporters, his first comments since entering mandatory isolation. He says he is fully vaccinated for the coronavirus and will clear the two-week waiting period following his second shot on Wednesday.
It’s unclear whether he’ll be able to return at that point. Game 4 is Sunday night, followed by Game 5 at Vegas on Tuesday.
