Details On The Return To Play

from Sportsnet,

The NHL and NHLPA have agreed on protocols to resume play, Sportsnet can confirm. The two sides continue to negotiate an extension to the collective bargaining agreement.

Once a CBA extension is agreed upon, the NHL’s board of governors and the full membership of the NHLPA will vote on both the extension and the return-to-play protocols that were agreed to on Sunday.

The newly agreed-upon protocols cover Phase 3 and 4 of the NHL’s return-to-play plan. According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, this includes a framework for how the return-to-play would be called off if the COVID-19 virus cannot be contained.

from TSN,

The NHL and NHLPA have finalized a tentative agreement on Phases 3 and 4 of the league's return-to-play protocols, but are still working on finalizing the details of the Collective Bargaining Agreement Memorandum of Understanding, according to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie.

Both the return-to-play protocols and CBA will need to be ratified by the NHLPA executive committee followed by a full membership vote. However, no ratification will take place until the CBA MOU is finalized. It will also require ratification by the NHL Board of Governors.
