The NHL is looking to hold opening day of the 2020-21 season at an aesthetically pleasing location to make it even more memorable, according to The Athletic's Michael Russo.

Beginning the campaign at Lake Louise in Alberta was one possibility, but that idea has since been squashed due to issues that surfaced after visiting the site, Russo adds.

Two of the league's marquee events in 2021 - All-Star Weekend and the Winter Classic - were postponed Thursday until 2022 at the earliest.

The league is still targeting Jan. 1 as the potential start date for next season.
