The NHL and the NHLPA agreed to begin training camps July 10 for the 24 teams taking part in the league’s relaunch later this summer, should it be safe for teams and players to do so.

The league made the announcement Thursday as teams can begin “Phase 2” of the NHL’s restart plan, which allows for small group workouts. The Washington Capitals were one of the teams that began voluntary workouts featuring a limited amount of players Thursday at their facility at MedStar Capitals Iceplex. 

Training camp will mark “Phase 3” for the NHL. The camp is expected to last two weeks with exhibition games possibly beginning July 24 and playoff games a week later.

Late last month, the NHL detailed its plan to relaunch amid the coronavirus pandemic — detailing a 24-team plan to finish out its season in two hub cities. The league has yet to announce when play will restart, or where the games will be played.
