The Canadian federal government is expected to approve a seven-day quarantine for NHL players from American-based teams traded to Canadian-based teams.
CBC's David Cochrane was the first to report the news.
The new seven-day quarantine will include extra testing.
The news comes just weeks before the NHL's April 12 Trade Deadline.
Currently any player dealt from an American team to a Canadian team would have to quarantine for 14 days.
