As expected, the official word has come down that the NHL will postpone the remainder of the season. The “hope” is to restart the season at some point, and part of the process was asking about arena availability as late as July.
The logistics of something like that are very difficult to plan/predict. If the season goes to July, what happens to the draft? Free agency? Arbitration? Does it delay next season’s start so the players get rest? How does it impact the CBA negotiations?
Those are all questions for another day. For now, as a reminder, stay safe. Stay informed. Use good judgment. Wash your hands. Use social distancing. Be safe.
