The New York Islanders have gone through COVID-19 hell this season. But on Wednesday, the last Islander remaining in COVID-19 protocol in Sebastian Aho skated with the team at practice.

Aho entered COVID protocol on Dec. 30 and was unavailable for the Islanders’ last two contests between the Buffalo Sabres and Edmonton Oilers.
Aho has two assists in 12 games played with the Islanders this season.
Over this break, the Islanders have been able to get healthy, something they have not been since the start of the season.
On Monday, the Islanders saw forwards Brock Nelson (COVID-19) and Kyle Palmieri (lower-body) return to practice after both had been out of the lineup.

Ryan Pulock is the only player still out, with associate coach Lane Lambert giving no timetable following practice on Tuesday.
Pulock has been rehabbing and skating on his own as he works his way back from a lower-body injury sustained in a game on Nov. 15 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
