The Tampa Bay Lightning were the Stanley Cup champions this year, as the league held a successful NHL playoff bubble and restart of the season.
The estimated timing for the start of training camp will be released at a later date, according to the league, with another bubble atmosphere not expected for the 2020-21 season.
Vegas Golden Knights forward Max Pacioretty told the Associated Press in September that he didn't want to have to return to bubble play again.
