Good morning hockey fans!

While it might be a frigid day here on Long Island, there was some positive news about the potential 2020-21 NHL season. TSN’s Darren Dreger and Pierre LeBrun reported Monday night that the NHL was now eyeing a Jan. 13 start date for a 56 game schedule for the 2020-21 season.
