Following a Board of Governors meeting today (Friday), the WHL announced that the league plans to play a  2020-21 Regular Season.

It will consist of 24 games for each team.

The start date for the season will be determined once final approval has been received from the Health Authorities in each provincial and state jurisdiction and it is anticipated the approvals will be received soon.

All models and schedule formats are being considered by the WHL.

“The Western Hockey League is committed to providing a season for WHL players,” said WHL Commissioner Ron Robison in a statement.
