  ANALYSIS-Missile tests and meetings: N.Korea signals confidence in face of coronavirus HEALTH-CORONAVIRUS/NORTHKOREA (ANALYSIS, PIX):ANALYSIS-Missile tests and meetings: N.Korea signals confidence in face of coronavirusSome international experts are sceptical of North Korea's assertion that it has not had a single case of the new coronavirus, which was first detected in neighbouring China.

The hockey season was put on hold last month due to COVID-19, and there currently is no timetable for a potential return.

However, you can add the NHL to the many leagues who are searching for alternative ways to continue their season amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The league is reportedly exploring the option of playing games at a neutral site in either North Dakota or New Hampshire, according to SportsNet's John Shannon.

It's definitely an interesting thought for games to be played at a neutral site, but practices and games would be crammed into a small period of time leaving players little time to rest ahead of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

If this does end up being the solution, you can bet on empty arenas and fans watching the games from the comfort of their own homes.
