Report: WHL and Saskatchewan government expected to announce Regina bubble for shortened season

Nothing has been confirmed by the provincial government or Western Hockey League, but several reports suggest that approval has been granted for Saskatchewan WHL teams to play in a bubble in Regina.

What is being suggested is that the Regina Pats, Moose Jaw Warriors, Swift Current Broncos, Saskatoon Blades and Prince Albert Raiders would form a Saskatchewan division, with Winnipeg and Brandon possibly joining in pending approval from Manitoba.

What has been confirmed is that the league has submitted a return to play proposal to the Saskatchewan government and Saskatchewan Health Authority.

Alberta and the WHL have already announced that province that will see a 24 game season kick off on February 16th, where teams in the province will play out of their own rinks.
