The National Hockey League is taking another look at realigning that would go into effect for the 2013-14.
Last winter, the NHL announced a plan to split the teams into four conferences — two with seven teams and two with eight teams — but the NHLPA nixed the idea.
NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed to the New York Post that the league was looking at reconfiguring the league.
“We are working on a realignment plan for next season,” Daly wrote, “but it has not been finalized or approved (by the board of governors) yet.”
The union must also approve any changes to the current divisional and playoff structure.
