The layoffs affected longtime editor-in-chief Jason Kay, senior editor Brian Costello, managing editor Edward Fraser, senior writers Ken Campbell, Ryan Kennedy and Matt Larkin, features editor Sam McCaig and art director Shea Berencsi. Two contract workers are still producing content for THN’s website.

Graeme Roustan, The Hockey News’ publisher and owner, said he considers the layoffs a temporary measure and will re-evaluate the decision every week. He pledges to bring everyone back to work once the NHL resumes activity.

“I’ve set my own timeline to every Friday morning,” he said in an interview, “to wake up and try to determine what next week looks like.”

If the NHL were to return before a Friday morning, he said “the recall would take place that instant.”

Might get very boring every Friday.  I don’t see infections and deaths going decreasing. Good old Africa will blow numbers away.

You can keep trying to find Paper Towels, Wipe your bummy stuff.

Ran out in Vancouver, seriously, a couple of months ago.

Fall 2020 would be a very good surprise.
