NEW YORK - The NHL has rescheduled one of the three Ottawa Senators games that were postponed this week due to a COVID-19 outbreak on the team.

The league announced Friday that Ottawa's game at New Jersey originally scheduled for Tuesday night will now take place Dec. 6 at the Prudential Center in Newark.

The Senators and the NHL announced Monday that the game at New Jersey, as well as home games Thursday against Nashville and Saturday against the New York Rangers, would be postponed as the team tried to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

At the time the Senators had 10 players and an assistant coach in the league's COVID-19 protocol.

Make-up dates for the home games against Nashville and New York have not yet been announced.

The Senators are scheduled to return to action Monday at Colorado.
