The NHL Bubble is the solution to the resumption of the hockey league with plans to host the Eastern Conference in Toronto's Scotiabank Arena and the Western Conference in Edmonton's Rogers Place. Both hosts have now agreed to the strict Return to Play protocols that are set in place to ensure safety within the 'bubbles' with the ongoing threats of the COVID-19 pandemic.
There will be a lot of testing taking place with a maximum of 52 people that teams can bring -- that number cannot surpass 31 players. Prior to arriving, the traveling party to the league bubble was submitted for examination. The teams must include the following -- two trainers, one doctor, three coaches, one security representative, one massive therapist, one ART therapist/chiropractor, one content/social media manager, a compliance officer, and an equipment manager.
