Frank Seravalli of TSN,

It appears the Stanley Cup will be handed out on Canadian soil for the first time since 2011.

That’s cause for celebration, even if there will be no fans in the arena and a Canadian-based team might not be playing for Lord Stanley’s chalice.

Hockey is nearing a return. Happy Canada Day, indeed.

After a marathon bargaining session that stretched into the wee hours of Wednesday morning, the NHL and NHL Players’ Association appear to have a framework in place on a deal to restart the season in late July.

The deal, which is not finalized, would encompass the full scope of the Return to Play tournament, plus a multi-year extension on the Collective Bargaining Agreement and the necessary financial and salary cap transition rules.
