Tuesday, December 1, 2020 - 21:15

The fractured and lengthy two-part NHL season of 2019/2020 was a record-setting one for European participation in the NHL. A season that began on 2 October 2019, stopped on 11 March 2020 because of Covid-19, and resumed with a new playoff format on 1 August, finally ended with the presentation of the Stanley Cup, to the Tampa Bay Lightning, on 28 September 2020, four days shy of one full year.
