Friedman: The NHL’s new COVID-19 protocols are stiff for unvaccinated players

The biggest news is a mechanism for teams to suspend unvaccinated players who are “unable to participate in club activities.” This includes situations where a player cannot travel because of local, provincial/state and/or federal regulations “upon return.” Such individuals would “forfeit the equivalent of one day’s pay for each day” they are precluded from participating.

There are some other interesting details, including opt-outs which may forfeit a player’s ability to perform in another league or the Olympics (yep, that’s coming up in like 5 months). It’s a strong, but reasonable stance that I’m happy they are taking.

Another cheap veteran center/winger that has NHL experience? Cool with me.
