Training Camps Not Likely To Open Until January 10th or Later

According to Brian Burke, the NHLPA has dug in their heels on being able to spend Christmas/holidays with their families. As a result, they would not be available to cross borders or begin quarantining in hub cities until December 26th or 27th. With a 14 day quarantine necessary, that means camps would not be be able to begin until January 10th or later.

Keep in mind this is but one of a number of sticking points between the league and the players, so there is still much to determine before final decisions are made.
