NHL officials acknowledged Friday there is a long way to go before celebrating hockey's return during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Teams must submit rosters and full 52-person travelling parties Friday and travel to the hub cities of Toronto or Edmonton, Alberta, on Sunday. There are 12 exhibitions games before the real playoffs start on Aug. 1.

Commissioner Gary Bettman said getting to those quarantined bubbles and resuming play are just two more steps in the process with the hope of awarding the Stanley Cup in late September or early October.

The successful beach volleyball player Kira Walkenhorst stands for her hoped-for comeback without a teammate. After a long break and new adversities caused by the Corona crisis, the 29-year-old blocker can imagine intervening in the qualification for the German championship this month. "But I still need a partner for this," said Walkenhorst, who lives in Hamburg, on Monday.

The NHL significantly pushed back its timeline of when it can potentially resume playing by several weeks, if not a month or more, as a result of the new coronavirus pandemic.

“We still have a way to go to feel any sort of gratification,” Bettman said. “If there’s any point I’m going to feel substantial emotion, it’ll be a sense of relief when I get to present the Stanley Cup.”

Progress is being made. The league reported only two positive coronavirus test results during the first week of training camps.

NHL chief medical officer Dr. Winne Meeuwisse expects players and staff to test positive in the hub cities and said there is a plan to deal with that. Everyone will be tested daily with the goal of results being available within 24 hours, and the league has insisted that won't interfere with public resources.

“The quicker turnaround time and the availability on testing is not subtracting from the publicly available testing,” Meeuwisse said. “We did not want to embark on a strategy that was going to take away protective equipment or testing from vulnerable populations and health care workers.”

 Nashville must forfeit the recovery of MLS Dallas repetita . After nine positive tests at Covid-19, the Nashville SC is forced to forfeit the resumption of MLS, back since Wednesday. It is the second team after Dallas to have given up on the revival tournament at Disney World (Orlando). " Due to the number of positive tests, the club has been unable to train since arriving in Orlando and will no longer be able to play games," said Don Garber in an statement released on Thursday.

Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league had confidence in the safety of its bubbles, which will include roughly 200 security guards and fencing to keep those inside separated from the general public. But he's also not ready to take a victory lap.

“I will say my level of confidence has increased along the way,” Daly said. “I think I’m comfortable with the protocols and procedures we have in place. And more importantly, I’m comfortable with how all the players seem to have embraced them and taken them seriously and are adhering to them.”

NHL senior vice-president of events and entertainment Steve Mayer said tributes to front-line workers and elements of social justice issues, including the Black Lives Matter movement, would be part of opening ceremonies in each city.

Mayer believes individual player demonstrations may happen organically; members of the Maple Leafs have worn Black Lives Matter shirts at their practice facility.

“We’ll see how our players react naturally to what we will present opening night, but there will be some moments within the opening night ceremony that will touch on Black Lives Matter and social justice,” Mayer said. “More to come on that, but it is something that of course we’re talking about incorporating.”
