The National Hockey League, like many professional sports leagues around the world, has been suspended for over a month now. The League came to a halt on March 12 after the coronavirus outbreak had become an increased threat to the countries safety. The League has hopes of returning to finish the regular season and head into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but that’s still unclear. We’ll be keeping an eye on when the NHL could possibly return amid the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
The latest on the return front isn’t much of an update. The League announced that it has extended the self-quarantine period 15 days to April 30. This has been the plan all along with the League saying it will “bite chunks” out of the calendar. This pretty much means things haven’t changed and we’re still in limbo.
The NHL has thrown around the idea of playing games in neutral locations, including North Dakota and New Hampshire. Those are just speculative reports and larger plans haven’t even been thrown out there anyway.
