More of my coverage of #NHLJets Camp Pandemic today:
How many countries in this country? Never gets old ...

With all the protocols, it seems there's no rule against players spitting. My exchange with #NHLJets captain Blake Wheeler: Me: Is there a rule against spitting? BW: Like, on you? Me: No, on the bench, on the ice. BW: I haven’t heard that one. I don’t know. I’ll have to ask."
#NHLJets captain Blake Wheeler says it's obviously pretty safe in Wpg for camp. "Going into Edmonton... you just don’t know. But they’ve done their due diligence to try and make this as safe as possible. The fact that we are playing both hub cities in Canada certainly helps."
#NHLJets captain Blake Wheeler on coming back: "When you think about everything going on in the world and then, you think about going back and playing a game it is sometimes hard to put that into perspective, but overall I feel really good about what our team has done..."
The #NHLJets main group will hit the ice here at the Iceplex in 25 minutes or so. First group included fourth liners like Mathieu Perreault and Mason Appleton, D-men Nathan Beaulieu and Tucker Poolman. A matter of making the groups more even in numbers, I presume.
