Sports are officially beginning to make a return to the world, or at least for the moment, barring another explosion in coronavirus statistics.

We’ve seen soccer leagues announce returns, the UFC host fights, football is planned to go as scheduled, the NBA is ramping up discussions, and now the NHL has officially laid out its road map to finish the season.

Per commissioner Gary Bettman, the league will officially not finish the regular season and 24 teams will return for a playoff style format, after training camp begins in July.

The top four teams in each conference will receive a first round bye, while seeds fifth through twelve will play in a best of five series to qualify for the typical 16 team post season format that the NHL puts on.

Teams will be located in two main hub cities and limited to personnel of 50 total people. Bettman also said that they would be spread out over multiple locations within the area.
