NHL still hoping for mid-January start to 2020-21 season

The National Hockey League and the NHL Players’ Association are continuing to hammer out the logistics for the upcoming 2020-21 season. While nothing has officially been finalized between both sides, there is still hope that the league can get the season started in mid-January, preferably its most recent target start date of Jan. 13, 2021.

When speaking in a panel discussion on “Holding Domestic and International Competitions in the Modern Conditions of a Pandemic” at the World Hockey Forum in Moscow, Russia, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman addressed a number of the ongoing discussions via video conference. Bettman said that the league is going to try and get in as many games as possible this upcoming season, and that both the NHL and NHLPA are working with local and state government regulations to put together a plan that works and is safe for all parties involved.
