The NHL bubble in Edmonton is being blocked off by fences

Jul 21 2020, 9:10 pm

Preparations are well underway for the 2020 NHL Playoffs, with fences being installed to enclose the bubble that will separate players from the public.

The fences have been erected around Rogers Place in the hub city to create a pedestrian walkway for players as they head in and out of the arena to nearby hotels in Edmonton’s Ice District.

While excitement builds for the return of hockey, some Edmontonians are less than thrilled at the inconveniences the bubble may pose to daily life.

Daily Hive reached out to the City of Edmonton for comment but did not hear back by the time of publication.
