Well, Kakko is in Manhattan now as are most of the European players so its not like he did'nt come over to North America for camp. in Fact JD has stated that nothing has changed since June when the information first surfaced regarding Kakko's potential vulnerability.

Hurdle Kaapo Kakko must clear to play for Rangers this season;
The NHL’s protocols for Phase 3 (training camp) and Phase 4 (the play-in series and Stanley Cup playoffs) are pending ratification by the players and board of governors, but they spell out one key hurdle for Kaapo Kakko to clear to be able to play with the Rangers this summer.

Before any player can participate in formal training camps, which are scheduled to begin Monday as long as the union and league vote in favor of the return to play protocols and collective bargaining agreement extension, he must undergo a pre-participation medical examination (PPME). Part of the exam will evaluate whether a player has any underlying conditions that could present increased risk with a COVID-19 infection.

Rangers president John Davidson said last month that the team would let its doctors and science dictate Kakko’s availability, which at the time deemed him good to go. Kakko’s agent, Andy Scott, told The Post on Tuesday nothing has changed since then and that it is still the plan for the rookie to play.

Well if the criteria is “””Part of the exam will evaluate whether a player has any conditions that could present increased risk with a COVID-19 infection” then it’s obvious diabetes is a risk already being treated daily. And I guess up to the medical professionals to determine his risks. I would suspect he might even be required to sign some sort of waiver, although that would probably be met with a lot of his representatives and Player Union resistance. You would hate to see the kid get sick.
