The New York Post’s Larry Brooks spoke with a source regarding yesterday’s NHL General Managers’ conference call, and Brooks’ source reports this regarding the shape of training camp for the 2020-2021 season–and he adds a note regarding the NHL’s not-playoff teams (like the Red Wings):
Training camp would be 14 days and include a maximum of 35 players (skaters plus goaltenders).
A nine-day conditioning camp including up to 35 players (skaters and goaltenders) for draft selections, entry-level players and tryouts, may be scheduled prior to camp. Players participating in conditioning camp must also be invited to the main camp.
The seven clubs that did not make the 24-team summer tournament, and thus have not been on the ice since the mid-March pause of the 2019-20 season, will be granted an additional week-to-10 days of camp.
The plan is to play three or four exhibition games per team.
