Let’s go over some news and notes:
- It’s a shame the 2019-20 AHL season was cut short, because the Iowa Wild had the potential to do something really special. [Zone Coverage]
- While it sure sounds like hockey could be back relatively soon, there are still a lot of hoops to jump through, as Devan Dubnyk explains. [The Athletic]
- In case you’ve forgotten, vote Nordy for best mascot in the NHL!
Off the trail...
- The NHL is moving forward to Phase 2 of its plan to resume the 2019-20 season, meaning players will soon be allowed to work out in small groups at practice facilities. [Sportsnet]
- It’s also sounding like we may have an official date on when the NHL Draft Lottery will take place.
Hearing June 26 is the date that we should have the NHL Lottery Draft. No dates on the NHL Draft yet.— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) May 25, 2020
