The NHL will be returning overseas for the 2020-21 season
The NHL Global Series will be heading back overseas for regular season games in Finland and the Czech Republic during the 2020-21 season. In an official press release from the NHL, the league will hold exhibition games in Germany and Switzerland.
"I was very excited to learn that the Boston Bruins would be heading back to my home country to play in the 2020 NHL Global Series in Prague," Bruins forward David Pastrnak said. "I remember driving to O2 Arena as a kid to go see the Bruins play the Coyotes back in 2010 for the NHL Premiere games. The passionate fans and atmosphere were something I'll never forget - I can't wait to feel that energy again from the ice in Prague and Mannheim."
The Bruins are also set to play in Mannheim, Germany against Adler Mannheim at the SAP Arena in an exhibition contest. In addition, the Predators will take on SC Bern in Bern, Switzerland in another exhibition tilt prior to the Boston/Nashville matchup to begin the regular season.
The NHL Global Series took place in Prague to open the 2019-20 season when the Chicago Blackhawks faced off against the Philadelphia Flyers. The series will continue on Friday and Saturday when the Buffalo Sabres take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in a pair of games in Stockholm, Sweden.
