The NHL is taking a big step towards preparing its players for the upcoming Stanley Cup Finals.
The league is offering a training camp at the NHL Institute in California, which has hosted more than 100 NHL training camps since 2005.
The NHL will hold training camps for more than 2,000 players and staff members this summer.
It’s the first time the league has offered such a wide-ranging, high-intensity camp.
The training camp will be the second since the Stanley Cup Final was decided, but the first since the NHL is facing the biggest pressure to win a second title.
