The 29-year-old was placed in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol on December 19 for one night after a false positive test.
Sgarbossa, who skated with the extras during Tuesday’s practice, has two goals and three points in seven NHL games this season in addition to earning eight goals and 14 points in 15 AHL games.
Head coach Peter Laviolette told the media on Monday that he was hopeful of getting right-wing T.J. Oshie off of COVID-19 protocol before the team’s game against the Nashville Predators on Wednesday (7 PM ET, NBC Sports Washington in-market, ESPN+ out-of-market). Centers Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov returned to practice with the team this week.
