LACHLAN SINCLAIR is a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
He’s the latest player to be removed from the NHL season after a viral allergy outbreak hit the league in the United States and Canada.
Here’s what you need to know about the All-Stars.
WHAT IS AN ANTI-ADVERSE REACTIVE SEED?
The All-Season-Winning NHL Players’ Association and the NHL Players Health Association have both been working together to identify players with symptoms of an allergy.
Symptoms can range from a sore throat, to an itching or burning sensation, to severe allergic reactions.
An allergy diagnosis can take months or even years to come.
The symptoms can also include swelling in the affected area, which can lead to an infection.
An allergic reaction is an abnormal response to something that causes an allergic reaction.
WHO’S BEING OUTED?
NHL players and their families are being made aware of the outbreaks by social media, and the league is monitoring players for symptoms.
As a result, some players have been taken off the ice, and some players are on short rest.
The league will continue to monitor players for any signs of an allergic response.
The NHLPA is working closely with the NHL to help identify any new players with an allergic or an allergic-like reaction.
The All Stars will have an additional 24 hours to report any player who appears to have an allergic issue.
WHO IS THE ANTI ALL-STAR?
All-Time Most Valuable Player (MTLP) Ryan Getzlaf was removed from this year’s All-Sight game after a flare-up in his allergy symptoms.
The all-time leading scorer in NHL history is expected to be back in action next month.
The Maple Leafs are looking to return to the All Star Game next week, but have had no announcement yet on when Getzlav might return.
Getzlak was removed for two weeks for a flare up of anaphylaxis after he was diagnosed with an allergy in February.
The former All-Defensive Team member had a severe reaction to a protein in his food that caused an allergic episode.
WHAT ARE THE POTENTIAL REACTIONS?
Symptoms of an anaphytic reaction include: an itching sensation, a burning sensation or irritation
