NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman will make an announcement today to explain the league’s Return to Play plan that the NHL and NHLPA voted on last week. TSN’s Pierre LeBrun continues his hockey media dominance, tweeting out details of today’s announcement.
Whether or not Bettman will share any news about when or how the NHL will resume play is unknown, but we do know that there will only be 24 teams finishing the 2019-20 season, the Blackhawks included.
There is also speculation that part of Bettman’s announcement will be the league’s plan for the 2020 NHL Draft that was originally scheduled for June 26-27.
