NHL, NHLPA agree to begin training camps July 10
The NHL and NHLPA have agreed to begin Phase 3 of the return-to-play plan, and teams will report for training camps on July 10, the league announced Thursday.
If medical and safety conditions permit a start, and if the parties have reached an overall agreement on resuming, camps for all 24 returning teams will begin. The length of training camp and the start date for a formal resumption of play (Phase 4) haven't been determined.
The two hub cities that will serve as hosts for the playoffs also remain undecided.
Some Canadian teams, including the Calgary Flames, have explored holding training camp in the United States to avoid Canada's 14-day quarantine rule for anyone entering the country.
Many teams had players return to club facilities in small groups this week for both on- and off-ice training as part of Phase 2.
