Coronavirus: Coach Smith says all Senators with COVID-19 now fully recovered

Ottawa Senators head coach D.J. Smith revealed all the players and members of the NHL organisation that tested positive for coronavirus are now fully recovered. 

An unidentified Senators player was the first in the NHL to contract COVID-19 – the team announced on March 17 – and another player was confirmed positive four days later. 

Three other players, TSN colour analyst Gord Wilson and a staff member had also tested positive for coronavirus.

"Everyone that had it didn't have horrible symptoms, not what we're seeing on TV and some of the people that have really struggled," Smith said on Wednesday.

"Some guys didn't feel well but being athletes they all got through it and they're all on the other side now."

The Senators earlier announced that the people in question were part of the team's travelling party to California before the NHL suspended the season on March 12 due to the outbreak of the virus.
