Canada Reducing Quarantine Period To 7 Days For Traded NHL Players

The Canadian government is set to approve a seven-day quarantine period for NHL players coming into the country.
The change will help Canadian teams looking to sign players from U.S.-based teams before the trade deadline.
The new quarantine period for NHL players will include additional COVID-19 testing for players.
Currently, any “non-essential” travelers entering Canada are required to quarantine for 14 days.
Under the previous rules, players joining a Canadian team on the day of the deadline would not meet their team until April 27.
The two-week quarantine also affects players' fitness levels and could see them miss even further game time.
