A week ago all signs pointed to Toronto and Vegas as being the two host cities for the NHL's return to play.
However things are changing rapidly in the current coronavirus environment and the host cities might be some of those changes.
While Vegas and Toronto still remain in the mix, it sounds like the NHL is still only down to six cities.
According to multiple reports, those six cities are Vegas, LA, Chicago, Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto.
Numbers have been steadily declining in Chicago so it stays a viable option.
However like every city on the list it'll be interesting to see if there's a spike in numbers after reopening certain business and venues.
Dallas and Pittsburgh have also been informed they are no longer in the Hub city process, joining Columbus and Minnesota on the outs. The six that remain are Vegas, Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, LA and Chicago.
