Rescheduling the 2020 induction ceremony will be discussed Oct. 29 when the Hall of Fame’s Board of Directors are next scheduled to meet. While it’s possible the class of 2020 could be inducted on alternative dates during the modified 2020-21 NHL season, the most likely scenario is to postpone to November 2021, either by waiving the 2021 elections or in combination with the 2021 induction class involving adjusted category limits,” McDonald said in a statement.
The qualifying round has gone nearly as well as the Sharks could have hoped for, minus former captain Patrick Marleau.
Even though the San Jose Sharks are not a part of the NHL’s return to play, they got some good news. All-Star forward Tomas Hertl is back on the ice after tearing his ACL and MCL against the Vancouver Canucks in January. The 26-year-old had 16 goals, and 20 assists before his injury, and was named to the NHL All-Star game.
