There hasn't been an NHL game since March 12, but according to Florida Panthers President Matthew Caldwell, hockey could return in July to resume its 2019-2020 season.
"At least for the NHL, we're trying to target sometime in July and then when we feel that players are safe, we have enough testing, and have enough ways to get back on the ice, it's probably going to be contained to playing at four or five neutral sites, so that's all being discussed right now," Caldwell said. "My guess is that we would start with either limited fans or empty arenas.
"None of this has been finalized but this is the direction things are going."
The Minnesota Wild will be just 2 points out of the playoffs when play resumes.
