Gary Bettman: “(Salary) Cap Will Be Flat For At Least A Couple Of Years”; 2020-21 Start May Slide To Late December or Early January

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was a guest on TSN Radio Vancouver on Friday. During his appearance he discussed a number of key topics, including the current thinking regarding the league’s salary cap, and the latest estimate for the start of the 2020-21 season.

Bettman said the salary cap will remain at $81.5 million for a least a couple of years due to lost revenue associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bettman also shed some light on the current thinking with regards to the start date for the coming 2020-21 season, admitting the start may slide to late December or early January.

NHL training camps are currently set to open on November 17, but with current thoughts on the start date slipping, camp starts could slide to early December.
