This morning, the NHL provided an update on the state of the suspended 2019-20 season through a quick Q&A and I wanted to look at a few of the answers provided in the short release.
It appears that the Bakersfield Condors will be getting a little run support in the offensive world next season as Raphael Lavoie gets set to turn pro.
It’s safe to say that Peter Chiarelli’s tenure in Edmonton was a disaster. But, after 14 months of reflection since being fired as the Oilers’ general manager, Chiarelli is ready for another chance.
It appears the Oilers will be adding another jersey to their catalogue next season, as Icethetics’ recent Jersey Watch reports. It looks as though the team will be digging up something from the past again, though it won’t be the royal blue style many have been asking for. It’ll be more orange.
A group of NHL’s top players has suggested that the playoffs for the 2019-20 season be played in August and September.
We’ve still got a long road ahead of us.
The world is different, but Oilersnation will and always has been my escape from the world. This update is a little rough but in the coming weeks I will be working to try and give you some updates on players seasons, and how they did from the words of the people who covered them.
Ladies and gentleman, we have actual hockey news.
Season suspended; what should the NHL do with the regular season; True North fails miserably to look after their own; the Leafs should bring Subban to Toronto; Flames need more of “that” Lucic and more in this week’s Nation Roundup brought to you by Sumo Jerky.
Hours after the NHL announced that its season was being put on hold, the Canadian Hockey League announced that the QMJHL, WHL, and OHL will be doing the same. With leagues just a few weeks away from wrapping up their regular seasons and beginning the playoffs, they will now have to make some difficult decisions…
As we were expecting all morning, the NHL has officially suspended the 2019/20 season for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this point, there is no estimated timeline on how long this stoppage will last as the situation remains fluid and will likely change many times over the coming days and weeks.
Obviously, this is an ongoing story that will change significantly as we move along, but it looks like the NHL is taking steps towards suspending play for the foreseeable future. Here are the updates from this morning so far.
