While there is no set date for the return of the NHL, the league is preparing for the possible return of action in the late summer.

"Earlier (Tuesday), the National Hockey League did request from each of its 31 member clubs to provide available home dates for the month of August," TSN's Bob McKenzie reported on the latest edition of "Insider Trading."

Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said recently that while the possibilities for the rest of the 2019-20 season are "almost endless," the league wants to avoid scenarios that prevent it from holding a full 2020-21 campaign. Essentially, it does not want next season shortened or compromised in any way.



On Tuesday, the NHL extended the self-quarantine period for players by an extra 10 days. The initial timeline was March 27th.
