I can't see them continuing the regular season, if they come back in May it would seem it would be the playoffs.

USHL declares season canceled.

AHL still hanging on.

NHL says their plan is to open up a "training camp" in June, resume in July, playoffs in August, September Stanley Cup Final, draft and free agency in October, and 2020-21 season starts in November.

Meaning.... AHL would likely shadow. Unless they scrub the season and start up in October as normal, but that could be interesting with free agency.

I'll be very surprised if there are any sports at all in the next year or so. This virus ain't going away, people.

NMU, no they didn't. That was an unofficial idea the players association came up with. That hasn't even gotten to the point of a formal proposal to the owners yet.

The league has, so far, said that starting next season on-time is important to them. The players, obviously with such short career spans, really want to maximize any possibility to complete this year because of the escrow and impact on the salary cap.
