Sanderson, who arrived the day before the game due to COVID-19 protocols, is seeing doctors for more information, according to Friedman.
It wasn’t immediately clear when Sanderson suffered the apparent injury. The fifth overall pick of the Ottawa Senators in the 2020 NHL Draft played nearly 17 minutes in Team USA’s win and finished the game.
Sanderson tested positive for COVID-19 in Los Angeles where the team processed before traveling to China. He had to wait until testing negative for five consecutive days before joining his teammates and missed the first game, an 8-0 win over China.
