The Boston Bruins lineup is still being impacted by COVID-19.

The team announced Tuesday morning that forward Jake DeBrusk and three staff members have been placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.

DeBrusk has tallied nine points (five goals, four assists) in 27 games this season. He requested a trade in late November.

The Bruins returned to game action over the weekend following a two-week break resulting from many of the team's players entering the COVID protocols.

They host the New Jersey Devils at TD Garden on Tuesday night. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.
