NHL: Virus Protocols Not 'Relaxed' For Vaccinated Players

The NHL says it has not told players virus protocols would be relaxed when a team reaches a certain threshold of vaccination.

That differs from the vaccination standards set by the NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball. 

Vegas goaltender Robin Lehner criticized the NHL for its position. A league spokesman says the league has not promised relaxed protocols for vaccinated players.

Unlike the other sports leagues, the NHL has seven of its teams playing entirely in Canada this season.
