Crabb (illness) tested positive for the mumps Monday, ESPN.com reports.

Will Rangers forward Lee Stempniak also diagnosed with the mumps, that makes 18 players who have acquired the virus at some point this season. Crabb, who has spent the entire season in the AHL, is the first known player at that league level to have picked up the mumps, prompting the Hartford affiliate to go on high alert. Crabb will remain away from the team until doctors determine he's no longer contagious.

Crabb is being isolated from his teammates at AHL Hartford on Thursday and will be evaluated for the mumps virus.

Acquired from the Panthers near the end of training camp, Crabb has spent all season with Hartford, where he's produced seven points in 22 games. The mumps outbreak hasn't hit the minor leagues to the same extent it has in the NHL, but the organization obviously wants to take every precaution against further contamination if Crabb is confirmed to have the virus.

Joey Crabb might still return to the NHL this season.

"He didn't have a good camp, but [the demotion] wasn't based on just one thing," Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said. "The message I send him is that this isn't a closed door. He needs to go down and get his game in order so he can help this organization." Crabb had no points in just 9:49 minutes of ice time before heading to the AHL. The 30-year-old has played in 171 NHL games and we don't anticipate him ever having much fantasy value in standard leagues.
