Nicholas Cotsonika of NHL: The NHL is hoping the Vancouver Canucks can finished their 56 game schedule. The Canucks are working with public health officials who will say if/when things are safe enough to return. No player has approached GM Jim Benning about not returning.
“Once we’re healthy and we’re ready to play, I expect our players are going to be competitive here down the stretch,” Benning said. “We’ve got a hard-working group, a team that has a lot of pride. So, our schedule will be hard, we’re going to have a lot of games in a short period of time, but we’ll just see how we feel and how we come out of this and see where it goes.
