NHL players are voting on a return to play plan and a new CBA. If they vote to pass the document, NHL training camp is expected to start on July 13th with the qualifying round of the playoffs beginning on August 1st.
Oh, and there's some GREAT news from ESPN's Emily Kaplan.
If you're in Pittsburgh and living on the East Coast, this means that you will have hockey games on your television from 12pm until roughly midnight.
The schedule should look like this:
12pm est Toronto
2pm est Edmonton
4pm est Toronto
6pm est Edmonton
8pm est Toronto
10pm est Edmonton
