Hockey starts - well now actually!

It's a shortened season with new divisions.

Duration January 13, 2021 – July 2021
Number of games 56
Number of teams 31

Salary cap
As part of the new CBA, the salary cap will remain at $81.5 million for the 2020–21 season. Future increases will occur incrementally until the league recovers from the financial impact of the pandemic.

Rule changes
The league announced on December 22, 2020, that the offside rules have been modified so that players only have to break the plane of the blue line to be ruled onside instead of having to actually touch it with their skate.

Player and puck tracking technology
For the first time, the league plans to use the league's player and puck tracking system in all 31 NHL arenas. The system will allow on-air features such as speed displays, puck tracking graphics, and marker graphics hovering above players (though not to the extremes on-air of the mid-90s FoxTrax experiment) THAT WAS HORRIBLE!. The league had planned to deploy this technology to all 31 arenas by September 2019, but a change to its primary technology partner delayed implementation.


Go nucks go!

As long as they are not skating on thin ice with any of those proposals
