The NHL has rescheduled 95 games to be played from Feb. 7-22 in what would have been the Olympic break. In December, the league announced that players would not participate in Beijing this year because of an increasing number of COVID-19 disruptions.
The schedule update puts the league on track to complete its 82-game season on April 29, the original end date to the regular season. The updated schedule includes new dates for postponed games as well as date changes to other games.
What does it all mean? Changes to the schedule will impact Canadian teams the most. And Ottawa is getting the worst of it, as the Senators will play 10 games from Feb. 7-22:
