The NHL was pushing for a 24 team playoff format for return to play and it seems they've got it. 

There was some pushback from some players for various reasons whether it be playing field, health concerns or logistics. 

However according to NHL insider Bob McKenzie the vote is in and the NHLPA has voted in favour of the proposed return to play format. 

"While last night’s NHLPA executive committee conference call got a little heated at times, and various individual players still have a wide variety of views on the NHL’s RTP format, the exec committee vote by team is expected to result in NHLPA approval of the NHL plan."

More to come.
