Vancouver will not be a hub city for the National Hockey League playoffs

NHL no longer considering Vancouver as hub city for now, sources say

"Although Vancouver won't be a hub city, we are still excited to see hockey start up again", the team said in a statement.

Following a snag in Vancouver's bid to be a hub city for the NHL's return-to-play plan, the league has begun focusing on other options, Sportsnet can confirm.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said last month he was considering 10 bids; Columbus, Dallas, Minneapolis-St. But I'm also the minister of health, and the players and the fans - and those working at the arenas and everyone in British Columbia - expect the rules to apply to everybody.

The announcement means the pool of potential cities to be designated one of two "hub" sites when play resumes in late July or early August has shrunk to five with Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Edmonton and Toronto still in the hunt. This is the reason to come. They are very intelligent people, and they will have their own considerations - considerations that might make Las Vegas or somewhere else a better location than Vancouver.

China's security law: The end of Hong Kong's semi-autonomous status?
China has yet to make public the full text of the law, which it claims has widespread support in Hong Kong. Beijing's imposition of a draconian National Security Law on Hong Kong is a needless disaster.

"But, frankly, if you're talking about the health of the players, if you're talking about the health of society, if you're talking about public health measures, if you're talking about an outstanding leader on public health, if you're talking about a committed and outstanding leader in Premier john Horgan, this is the place to come, and I hope they come". We are proud of the progress B.C. has made, and we have been clear that we will not bend our rules and risk this progress.

Bonnie Henry and their teams for their incredible support as we worked through the opportunity to host the National Hockey League teams in Vancouver.

The NHL, now in Phase 2 of their four-phase return plan, is now scheduled to move to Phase 3 of their return plan on July 10, and with game action projected to begin three weeks later barring a setback. Our hard work in flattening the curve against COVID-19 is what made Vancouver a strong candidate.
