It appears as though the National Hockey League has come to a final decision on the two hub cities for the 24-team Return To Play plan this summer.
It had been reported nearly three weeks ago that Las Vegas was preparing to be one of the two hub cities, and many had speculated that the city was a favorite landing spot for the NHL. However, with the spike in positive COVID-19 cases in the United States, especially with hotel and casino employees in the city, that appeared to be the final straw for Las Vegas' chances to be picked as a hub city.
It is not known when an official announcement from the league will come down, but it is expected to come along with the announcement of agreements of most issues for Phase 3 and 4 of the Return To Play format, transition rules, as well as an extension of the current collective bargaining agreement.
Stay tuned for the latest on this developing story...
