Breaking News: Covid-19 guidelines changing for the NHL

NHL Bubble

The NHL announced massive news regarding changes to Covid protocols. The NHL is following the footsteps of the CDC and changed the isolation period from ten days to five days with a negative test. The maximum is still ten days, so this does not mean a player will only be in the protocol for five days. The player will also have to wear a mask for an additional five days following the negative test, with the exception of when he is practicing or playing in a game. This is great news for all thirty-two NHL teams. This news, along with the Taxi squads coming back, should allow NHL teams to navigate the Covid outbreak ravaging the NHL.

The NHL has made some good changes in the last few weeks regarding Covid, and this is just another smart move by the NHL. For example, a team like Chicago may get a player like Marc-Andre Fleury back without missing a single game. This news is huge, and the effect of this change is going to be felt league-wide. This news should bring all hockey fans a little joy as the world and NHL continue a path back to normality.
