The Vancouver Canucks are the latest Canadian club to make a pitch to be one of the NHL's hub cities if and when play resumes.

Vancouver is among numerous teams that have submitted bids to the league, reports TSN's Ryan Rishaug, who adds that the NHL is reviewing the proposals.

The Edmonton Oilers are also among the squads that have applied, Rishaug reported Friday.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Sunday that anyone entering the country would have to abide by quarantine guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NHL is considering holding games in four hub cities if the current campaign ultimately proceeds.
