Reports: NHL, NHLPA discuss 56-game regular season with mid-January start date
The NHL and NHLPA are looking at the possibility of starting a 56-game regular season in mid-January 2021, according to TSN’s Frank Seravalli. Development: Sources say #NHL shared draft schedules with #NHLPA on Thursday, one including a 56-game regular season for 2021. Drafts were based on Jan. 1 start date, but sides discussed pushing that back (Jan. 15 or 16?). A Jan. 15 start is now being discussed, source says, really no choice given that Jan 1 doesn’t seem realistic at this point. If this new pandemic-shortened season really is going to start in mid-January, the NHL and NHLPA need to finalize something very soon.
NHL targeting Jan. 1 to begin next season
Commissioner Gary Bettman said Tuesday night the NHL is targeting a Jan. 1 start for next season. That declaration came after recent talks between the league and NHL Players’ Association. NHL teams are expected to get camps of at least two weeks, just as they did before the expanded playoffs over the summer. Free agency opens Friday, with the NHL looking to speed through the offseason while planning to play in 2021. “It’s kind of been refreshing to get back and have somewhat of a tentative date for when we’re going to be coming back,” Washington Capitals defenseman Brenden Dillon said.
