NHL, NHLPA hope for resolution in 7-10 days


TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reports the NHL-NHLPA Return To Play Committee has remained in constant dialogue since Saturday, with the hope being to reach a resolution over the next seven to 10 days.

LeBrun adds, however, that there are no guarantees of a resolution being reached in that timeline.

LeBrun reported Monday that the NHL and NHLPA made some progress over the weekend that involved a 24-team playoff format should play resume this summer. TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger added that a two-hub city concept featuring 12 teams in each city has been discussed and remains one of the possibilities if the NHL season is able to resume.
