Report: NHL discussing TV ‘kickoff’ week after Christmas

The NHL and its league television partners have engaged in discussions about a possible “kickoff” week that takes place after the Christmas holiday, according to highly-reliable social media account NHL Rumors Daily.

The report comes as rumors have circulated that December 1 is an unlikely start date to the 2020-21 season.

The NHL has been rather pleased with the style of having a daily block of games televised nationally, NRD reported, and it’s “something that has been discussed as a way of entering the 2020-21 season.”

Nothing has been finalized at this point in time, NRD notes.
