Adopting an in-season tournament isn't currently on the NHL's to-do list.
The NBA recently unveiled its plans for a European-style competition for its upcoming 2023-24 campaign. It will include all 30 teams and count in the standings until the championship game. The winners will be rewarded the NBA Cup, and players on the prevailing squad will receive $500,000.
"No consideration being given to in-season tournaments," deputy commissioner Bill Daly told ESPN's Greg Wyshynski.
