The National Hockey League will resume its season on August 1, the league announced on Monday.
Formal training camps will begin on July 13 with teams traveling to the league’s “hub cities” on July 26.
Additionally, the NHL and the National Hockey League Players' Association have reached a tentative agreement on a Return to Play Plan and a four-year extension to the league’s collective bargaining agreement. The tentative agreement is subject to approval by the NHL’s Board of Governors, as well as the NHLPA’s Executive Board followed by a vote from the full NHLPA membership.
The NHL has yet to announce the two “hub cities” that will host games.
The NHL has also released the league’s phase three and phase four return to sport protocols, which spell out the health and safety protocols that will be in effect as teams begin organized training camp activities and as teams enter the “hub cities.”
