Mandatory training camps are scheduled to begin July 10, although ESPN reported camps could be delayed until July 13. The NHL is scheduled to resume with a 24-team tournament to award a Stanley Cup winner in 2020.

The decision is expected to be finalized this week with player approval through a return-to-play vote.

Las Vegas and Vancouver were reportedly the favorites in mid-June, but Nevada had its five highest days of COVID-19 positive tests reported in the past week and is not viewed as a realistic option.
