An important withdrawal

COVID-19 took a toll on NHL players in the past years. This scenario led to a postponement of nearly 100 games. In addition, the NHL and players collectively decided to withdraw from Beijing Winter Olympics 2022, because they wanted to complete their last season. The withdrawal has given the NHL enough time for rescheduling the postponed matches. 

How to become ready for the new season 

On January the 19th, 2022, the NHL announced that they were organizing all the postponed matches from February to April 2022. However, the NHL also said they will still conclude the regular season on April the 29th.

The NHL has set a schedule of a few games and is still working on a complete schedule. But if you want to stay updated, you can check out the latest NHL schedule as the season will commence soon. 

The NHL revised updates in simple words:

∙       There will be new dates for all the matches, which were planned from November 18th, 2021, to January 18th, 2022. The games were cancelled due to low attendance because of COVID positive players and staff.

∙       Dates are changed for 23 other games; thus, the schedule can accommodate the postponed matches.

∙       Earlier 95 games were scheduled from February 7th to 22nd, 2022, thus, the players could participate in Beijing winter Olympics 2022. Now the NHL has withdrawn, and the schedule is empty for the previous postponed matches.

In this regard, the NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said: 

“We are profoundly grateful to our fans for their support and understanding during a challenging time and to our Clubs, the NHL Players’ Association, and the Players for their cooperation in a rescheduling of unprecedented logistical complexity.”  

So, if you, like us, are excited about the coming season, with a new Flyers coach at the helm, arm yourself with the right knowledge, before it all begins. All the updates on players and teams will help you predict best and bet accurately!
