The NHL season is pushing forward with the completion of the 2019-20 season.
It will get done one way or another and Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara is looking forward to it.
The B's vet is just looking to play hockey again even though he understands it'll be totally different.
“Whether we’re going to play some regular season games or we’re going to jump right into some sort of a playoff format, it’s still unknown. I just prefer to play hockey, so if it’s jumping into the playoff or playing some regular season games to get ready for the playoffs? You’ve just got to go with the flow,"
Chara says it'll a take a serious training camp first “at least 3 or 4 weeks until we’re comfortable”.
Boston's leader also confirmed there will be no fans.
“[Empty arenas] is what it’s going to be if we start. That’s for sure. We won’t be able to have fans in the stands. But you know what? It will kind of bring back memories to the years when we were kids and there weren’t any fans in the stands. Once I came over to [North America] to play juniors in the Western Hockey League, I was amazed there were 5, 6, 10,000 fans in the stands watching games. We didn’t have that back home. No fans at all. It definitely will be different and will be something to get used to, but I guess that’s the only way we can continue to play at this point.”
What do you think of Chara's comments?
Bruins captain Zdeno Chara confirms the arenas will be empty if/when the NHL season resumes this summer: "That's the only way we can continue to play" It sure feels like it could be that way for a while too ???????????? https://t.co/BAGPQPonq6
