Defenceman Josh Brook takes a shot during Laval Rocket practice at the Place Bell Sports Complex in Laval on Jan. 30, 2020.

On Tuesday, the AHL team announced four players and one staff member were placed on the COVID-19 protocol list. The league subsequently decided to postpone the Rocket’s game at Belleville Wednesday night, which would have started a five-game road trip and a sequence of 15 games over 25 days.

Members of the organization spent Wednesday undergoing rapid tests. If they are negative, the team will depart for Syracuse Thursday morning, according to a team official, and meet the Crunch Friday night.

Laval had five games postponed between Dec. 18 and Jan. 8 due to the pandemic, leading to this backlog and compressed schedule. The Rocket has played only 36 games — tied for the fewest in the AHL with the Marlies, who were scheduled to meet Utica Wednesday night.
