NHL discusses contingency plans during Board of Governors conference call

With so much uncertainty in the world right now, it’s nearly impossible for businesses to plan for when they can start working back to normalcy - the NHL is no different. In a step to discuss contingency plans, Gary Bettman and league executives held a conference call with the Board of Governors this past Monday.

On the call, the league discussed a number of different possibilities to conclude the season, including the potential of playing games through the summer and into September.

Darren Dreger of TSN is reporting that the league is still hoping to conclude this season but that they are committed to “playing a full 82 game season next year”.
