NHL Officials Assigned To Hub Cities

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

NHL officials that will be working the upcoming 2020 playoffs will also be required to enter the hub city “bubbles” and adhere to the same quarantine requirements that the players are required to meet. On Wednesday the league announced which officials would be working the playoffs, and which hub city they were assigned.

10 referees and 10 linesmen will be assigned to each hub city.

Training camps are set to open Monday and teams will head to Toronto and Edmonton (Western Conference hub city) on Sunday, July 26, six days before the qualifying and round robin rounds begin.

Games will begin on Saturday, August 1, with qualifying and round robin games played at noon, 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM (local time) in each of the hub cities. Because of the two hour time zone difference, the league will be able to play six games a day.

The game times for the six games are: noon, 2 PM, 4PM, 6 PM, 8PM and 10 PM ET.
