The National Hockey League will reimplement taxi squads and other roster revisions as the league struggles with COVID-19 outbreaks, The Associated Press reported.

According to the new provisions, any club is allowed to have a taxi squad of up to six players and can make emergency recalls to the minor league if COVID-19 absences would cause anyone to play without a full lineup.
