Huge news in the world of hockey as the NHL and the NHLPA have agreed on the terms of a new multi-year CBA agreement.
The agreement will allow players to return to the 2022 and 2026 Olympics, many fans will be extremely happy to see them participate in the super entertaining tournament.
Thanks to NHL insider Bob McKenzie, we've also learned that it seems Vegas is out as a hub city and Toronto and Edmonton are now the front runners.
Teams in the playoffs won't be allowed to bring in their freshly signed rookies though McKenzie reveals, so that means teams like the Montreal Canadiens who signed top tier prospect Alexander Romanov won't be able to add him to their roster for the playoff run.
More details regarding the major agreement will be released in the coming minutes.
With the usual qualifier of nothing is certain until the agreement is ratified — stamp that on every one of my tweets this week — it’s my understanding recently signed players Romanov (MTL), Kaprizov (MIN), Sorokin (NYI) will not be eligible for 2019-20 RTP.
