NHL-Players agree to resume virus-hit season Aug. 1 in Canada

July 10 (Reuters) - The NHL will resume its virus-interrupted season next month with a Stanley Cup tournament in Canada after players ratified a return-to-play plan and extension to a labor deal, both sides said on Friday.

An expanded 24-team Stanley Cup Playoffs will now start on Aug. 1 in Edmonton and Toronto without fans nearly five months after the National Hockey League halted its season due to COVID-19. (Reporting by Rory Carroll; Editing by Sandra Maler)
