2:02Bid from City of Edmonton, Alberta government to host NHL games at Rogers Place
WATCH ABOVE: (May 20, 2020): The City of Edmonton is offering up recreation centre rinks for NHL teams in its bid to host remainder of season, but Mayor Don Iveson had made it clear it won’t come at cost to taxpayers. Kendra Slugoski explains.
The NHL is hoping to move to Phase 2 of its return-to-play protocol, including the opening of practice facilities and allowing small group workouts, early next month.
The league, which was forced to pause its season March 12 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, released a 22-page memo detailing the plan Monday. The document stresses there’s no exact date for the start of Phase 2 or a timetable for how long it will last.
