Alberta’s Premier has said he believes Edmonton is the safest choice for the NHL hub-city setup, given how the city and the province responded to the pandemic.
Both Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson support the Edmonton Oilers‘ bid to be one of the ‘hub cities’ the NHL has been said to be considering as the sites of their potential return.
The league’s 2019-20 campaign has been suspended since March 12 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and no decisions have yet been made on when or how a potential restart of the season could come. However, as Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman has reported, the league is considering a 24-team playoff format that would see groups of six teams convene in four hub cities.
