Has Bettman spoken with Trudeau yet?
We know Gary Bettman and other commissioners from major sports leagues have spoken to U.S. President Donald Trump about getting sports back. But what about north of the border?
Darren Dreger: Well that has been the plan for a while. He hasn’t directly spoken with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau but he has been in contact with the Prime Minister’s Office in the past week and it’s expected that Bettman will speak with the chief of staff in the very near future and then after that there is a plan to connect directly with Prime Minister Trudeau. Now among the topics of discussion, we certainly learned that after the conference call with the president of the United States, Donald Trump, available testing – especially for sports teams – is a topic of conversation and to some degree, concern. Now, there’s a number of developing options that could be available promoting some optimism at least within the National Hockey League.
