Edmonton Oilers forward Jesse Puljujarvi has been deemed eligible to resume all team activities, the NHL team said Saturday.
After initially being placed on the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list on Thursday, he has met all requirements to be removed from the list, the team said in a release.
A player on the protocol list does not necessarily have COVID-19.
Following medical clearance, Puljujarvi returned to Edmonton alone via charter aircraft and will be on the ice when the club resumes practice Sunday.
Puljujarvi has five points (3-2) in 15 games this season.
