No Fighting?

Reports are starting to surface that the NHL will require players to wear full face shields, no scrums, no fighting, and no spitting on the ice if play resumes. Coaches will also need to wear masks and social distance, wingers will need to keep 2 feet apart on faceoffs also.

This of course are the views of one infectious disease specialist and aside from possibly wearing full face shields and no fighting or spitting, the rest will likely not happen. If the league has access to testing it will become less of an issue as well.
