NHL announces plans to resume season with 24-team playoff

The NHL season will resume this summer, directly into playoffs that will be contested in two “hub cities” for the duration of the tournament, Commissioner Gary Bettman announced Tuesday.

Cities being considered as playoff hosts are Chicago; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; Edmonton, Alberta; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; St. Paul, Minnesota; Pittsburgh; Toronto; and Vancouver, British Columbia.

Bettman said that health safeguards will be “paramount” and that each hub city will have a “comprehensive system of testing.”

The only people allowed in the arenas would be players, coaches and a limited number of support staff members of the participating teams, the league said.

“Things are evolving rapidly, and when we decide on locations, we want it to be on the best available information,” Bettman said.

“The final determination [of hub cities] will depend on COVID-19 conditions, testing availability and government regulations,” he said.
