The head of the National Hockey League (NHL), Gary Bettman, wants to ensure that his track playoffs and the possible border restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are guaranteed.
The special situation of this season is that the Canadian team of the Bateman Tour is grouped in the same part. The formation of Maple Leaf entering the semifinals will have to compete with American clubs.
The commissioner did not develop his own league plan for the upcoming series in Canada and the United States. However, he reiterated that his circuit will adapt.
“Regarding where we can take our players to travel, and where it is impossible, it will depend on government regulations. After more than a year of hard work, we will continue to re-examine and explore our options and remain flexible. Do what needs to be done within the limits. I think you can already see it this season.”
“The most important factor is to return to the game [la saison dernière] Bateman added that, or this season, this is the health and well-being of our players and the employees in the communities we serve. Where we go to play obviously depends on COVID. We want everyone to stay healthy. “
The NHL regular season is scheduled to end on Wednesday, May 19. There will be a duel between the Calgary Flames and the Vancouver Kanaks.
