Report: NHL assigns teams to hotels
NHL players know which hotels they'll be assigned to upon arriving in their respective bubble cities, and now the public does, too.
The league released hotel assignments to each team, TSN's Bob McKenzie reported on Thursday's "Insider Trading."
The Eastern Conference's top five teams will stay at Hotel X in Toronto, which is located on the Canadian National Exhibition grounds, where there will be a 40-acre campus-like village for the players.

The remaining teams in the Eastern Conference will call the Fairmont Royal York in downtown Toronto home, which is located just outside the bubble. McKenzie notes the hotels will be "fully locked down."

In the Western Conference, the top six teams will set up at the JW Marriott in Edmonton, which is connected to Rogers Place, the Oilers' state-of-the-art home.
