  • The NHL has officially approved a 24-team playoff format for its return to play, with each conference playing its games in a single hub city, commissioner Gary Bettman announced Tuesday.
  • Though there is no official date for a return, Bettman said the league will immediately proceed with the playoffs when teams take the ice again, meaning the 2019-20 regular season is officially over.
  • Bettman reiterates the 2020-21 season will play in its entirety (full 82 game season), and could start as late as the beginning of January, if needed.
  • These proposals are getting increasingly worse and yet they’re still suggesting them.
  • Incredible!
