The NHL announced Friday that the regular-season schedule will not resume until Tuesday.
The league had initially planned to resume games on Monday following a pause in play.
“The National Hockey League announced today that its regular-season schedule will not resume prior to Tuesday, Dec. 28. The league had planned to resume its schedule on Dec. 27, but in order to allow the league an adequate opportunity to analyze league-wide testing results and to assess clubs’ readiness to play, the target date for resumption of game play will be pushed back an additional day. Teams will return to practice on Dec. 26 and it is expected that the league will provide an update on its return to play plans by the end of day on Sunday," the NHL said in a statement.
