In the previous 36 hours, the NHL has added 23 players to its Covid Protocol list. And more are expected. The NHL and the NHLPA deemed it necessary to convene an emergency meeting.

According to Pierre LeBrun, the NHL is not considering suspending the season, but there are ways to rescue it. In his current The Athletic storey, he says:
«First of all, sources say the doctors from both sides who have been advising on COVID-19 matters were scheduled to have a call Tuesday night to discuss the latest happenings and presumably suggest the next steps — which could potentially result in those doctors recommending to the NHL/NHLPA more enhanced protocols. That could mean everything from more mandated mask-wearing to daily testing of players and staff. Under the protocols since the start of the season, players were being tested every three days.
«And further down the road, if this COVID-19 wave continues to worsen, you might see some NHL games with limited crowd sizes or no fans altogether depending on local government health authorities in different NHL markets.»
The Flames became the third team this season to have games postponed due to COVID outbreaks, following the Ottawa Senators and the New York Islanders, who also had games postponed last month. On Tuesday, the Carolina Hurricanes became the fourth.
