Pasta should come back to the US soon since Gary Bettman advises that European players return within a matter of days. Foreign players’ visas are due to expire on June 30th with the original end date of the NHL year. Ideally, players should return by June 21st to update those visas and to guarantee that they will be able to return to North America prior to the start of training camps, which start on July 10th. More time back gives more time to update legal working status, not to mention allowing for a period of self-quarantine, if needed.
We’ll have more on Pasta tomorrow.
