NHL executives to hold emergency meeting

The COVID-19 situation in the National Hockey League is not going at all as planned, even though the vast majority of players are vaccinated.

Last night, the NHL had no choice but to cancel the scheduled game between the Flames and the Blackhawks because of a Calgary outbreak.

Now, the league has been hit with another setback as the Carolina Hurricanes have put their activities on hold.

In less than 36 hours, no less than 23 players from different teams have been placed on COVID-19 protocol.

With the situation seemingly going off the rails, the NHL will hold an emergency meeting tonight with the Players' Association as well as the league's doctors.

The latter will discuss the latest hatchings within the Bettman circuit, but also the changes that will have to be applied.

Remember that some Canadian teams could play their games in an empty arena if the situation continues to worsen.

It will be interesting to see which way the NHL will go in the next few days and weeks. Let's hope for an 82-game season.
