NHL Assistant Commissioner Bill Daly confirmed that the NHL has recommended that players and staff extend their voluntary isolation by 10 days beyond the original March 27th date, further delaying the earliest date clubs could reopen their facilities.
Over the past two days, the league has held teleconferences with the governor’s office and general managers to update them on the issue and answer questions about the current situation.
It is still unclear when the NHL could resume its season, if at all, although Commissioner Bettman was optimistic that the NHL could resume the rest of the season and see the Stanley Cup awarded for this year. To do so, the season could continue late this summer and end in early fall. To be continued.
