Update: 2020 Playing Professional Sports During the Covid 19 Pandemic
Given the unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NHLPA and the NHL intend to be flexible and adaptable in their approach during the coming weeks to ensure compliance with directives from both local and national governmental and health authorities focusing on the health and safety of the players, other game-related personnel and the communities in which we play. The priority will continue to be focused on the health and safety of our fans and Players and Club, League, NHLPA and arena personnel.
Ok when I read that news while sheltering at home in Las Vegas, I was concerned about the 2020-2021 season. BUT in December 2020….The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) and National Hockey League (NHL) announced today an agreement to play a 2020-21 regular-season schedule of 56 games beginning Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021, and concluding on May 8. As part of the agreement, the Stanley Cup Playoffs would feature 16 teams in the traditional best-of-seven, four-round format and conclude around mid-July with the plan of returning to a “normal” hockey calendar for the 2021-22 season (regular season beginning in October).
When I heard that good news I let out a whoopee. My wife who had just gone to the door to bring in our 5 gallon container of natural spring water that gets delivered each week from Tahoe Springs, a local bottled water service, thought I was glad that the water was delivered and she was bringing it in for me. Nope. I mean I do appreciate that she lugged the 5 gallon container in, but I was delighted that I would get to enjoy watching our home hockey team get to play this year. Covid 19 has wrecked havoc across the US impacting everything includong professional sports. The NBA did a pretty good job with their truncated season. Baseball and football have been disasters. I hope the NHL fares better. Of course with covid 19 vaccines rolling out, and a new administration taking over we are beginning to see an end of this disaster. right? I sure hope so.
In addition to the other interesting things going on all year it is really shaping up to be a doozy around here. Little did we know what a doozy 2020 would be. If everything falls into place, I think this may be the year dreams are made of. I for one fully expect to make some serious memories. I can not even remember the last time I was this excited about anything. It Really Is Great!
