This just in courtesy of TSN hockey insider Ryan Rishaug, the Canadian federal government is expected to make an announcement concerning its 14 day quarantine period as it pertains to NHL players.
As things currently stand, anyone arriving in Canada from the United States or Internationally must go into a 14 day self-quarantining period in order to limit the risk of spreading COVID-19. This, of course, will have a HUGE impact on not only the NHL’s 7 Canadian teams but also on cities like Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver whom are all in the running to be chosen as one of the league’s “hub cities” when play resumes.
Now though, it seems like a solution is coming.
