As confirmed Tuesday by ESPN’s Emily Kaplan, the National Hockey League has issued a 25% pay cut to league office employees.


The NHL season has been officially suspended since March 12 amidst the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), with teams being told to self-isolate until at least March 27th.

While multiple options having been discussed as far as a return to the 2019-20 season, nothing has been confirmed of the 189 games that remained ahead of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.



The league hopes that implementation of temporary pay cuts now will help to prevent layoffs in the uncertain future and has announced the cuts will go into effect April 1st.
