Who does everyone think it is?

My guess is either Bjustad or Simon just for simple fact they had to get surgery completed.

Will this halt the idea of teams coming back?

I would probably rule both of those two out. If they had coronavirus, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be scheduling any surgeries so soon afterwards for fear of complications.

No, but Beau Bennett did reply to that image on Twitter, just with the eyes glancing at it. Beau's actually pretty funny on Twitter, and often makes jokes at his own expense about his injury history.

This was my first thought as well. Knowing the Penguins luck he'll develop some weird side effects that will prevent him from playing come July/August. NHL Draft Lottery here we come.

I thought I heard that Crosby stayed in Pittsburgh. The release says the person was not in Pittsburgh.

This has to be the best guest if you consider he went home to stay with his family and assuming they’re still living in the New York Metropolitan area.

He’s not in NY and hasn’t been during the break. There was an article a month or so back about Rust and ZAR has been living with him and his wife in Pittsburgh.

Whoever it is, we’ll probably find out Tuesday but the release also said the player is now feeling good. Which is what happens to 99.999999999999994% of people who contract it.

We won't find out unless the player himself tells us or someone performs a HIPAA violation. It really is nobody's business.
