The NHL and NHLPA announced on Friday the postponement of the league’s 2020 international games.
The Boston Bruins and Nashville Predators were supposed to square off in their 2020-21 season opener in Prague, Czech Republic. The Bruins and Predators were also going to complete their training camps in Germany and Switzerland, respectively.
Later in the fall, the Colorado Avalanche and Columbus Blue Jackets were slated for a pair of regular-season games in Helsinki, Finland.
“The NHLPA and the NHL remain committed to maintaining and growing our international presence. We hope that our fans overseas understand the need to postpone the 2020 games, but we look forward to being back with them in 2021,” the league and Players Association’ said via a release.
