Rumor: Players to return in May?
Larry Brooks is reporting that one NHL team has told its players to get ready to return by May 15th. While it sounds like great news, the NHL did throw some cold water on the dream. Of course, where there’s smoke there’s fire and the league is dead set on returning, it’s just a matter of when and how.
The Post has learned that at least one NHL team has told its players to be prepared to report on May 15 to begin informal workouts that would precede a training camp of up to three weeks. Not all teams have acted in a similar manner. “I don’t know what Clubs are telling their Players,” deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Post via email. “We have not specified or articulated any ‘target dates’ to our Clubs at this point.”NYPOST
In a video conference, Bruins President Cam Neely reiterated all recent reporting about playing again being a certainty barring no changes with the Pandemic.
“I can tell you this. Both the players & NHL ownership want to do whatever possible to get this season completed,” said Neely, on a Thursday afternoon virtual town hall with Bruins season ticket-holders. “If that means playing into the summer then we’re all willing to do that. The feeling is there’s an opportunity to be able to push next season back and still get an 82-game schedule in next year. Everything is on the table to try and get the [2019-20] season completed.NBC
