The National Hockey League and NHLPA sent out the Phase 2 protocol to all teams and players late Sunday, and said they are targeting a date in early June for the transition to Phase 2. Phase 2 would include small group workouts.

"Based on the current information available, we are now targeting a date in early June for a transition to Phase 2," the NHL memo read, before adding the precise start date, and how long Phase 2 could last, is still to be determined.
