The NHL is considering having all seven Canadian teams play the upcoming season in the United States, according to multiple media reports. The NHL was reportedly planning to realign its divisions for the 2020-21 campaign with a seven-team, all-Canadian division that would play domestically in Canada with no cross-border travel. However, recent reports suggest that every Canadian team may have to head south instead to adhere to provincial guidelines around COVID19.
