As the National Hockey League continues to ramp up activity with the goal being to resume play with the Stanley Cup Playoffs, eight Northeastern hockey alums have been named to the training camp rosters for their respective teams.
Training camp rosters are limited to 30 skaters and unlimited goalies, and are a part of Phase 3 of the NHL’s return-to-play strategy. Teams will travel to their designated hub cities on July 26th, with play planned to resume on August 1.

The play-in series has turned a chaotic resume-to-play situation into one of unpredictable excitement, and we look forward to watching these former Huskies in action. Hopefully the NHL can institute the proper testing, tracing, quarantine, and treatment protocols needed to allow the playoffs to continue with as little interference as possible.
