NHL is considering ending season in North Dakota

US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — The leadership of the National Hockey League is looking for opportunities to end the hockey season. The regular season was suspended due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic.

An option is being considered in which the remaining regular season matches and the Stanley Cup were held in North Dakota, which has the lowest population density in the United States.

In the city of Grand Forks there is a corresponding NHL arena criterion “Ralph Engelstad”, which hosted the matches of the World Junior Championship in 2005 and the World Championship for players under 18 in 2016. Meetings will be held without spectators.

However, it is still unknown whether the state, in which there is no NHL club, will be able to hold several dozen matches. In addition, there may be problems with the placement of teams.
