National Hockey League deputy commissioner Bill Daly announced on Thursday the league expects less than 15 players to be unvaccinated for COVID-19 this upcoming season, according to a recent report.

Daly told The Athletic that the vaccination rate is in the 98-99% range for players on final rosters for teams across the league.

As of Wednesday, the National Football League reported that 93.5% of their players were vaccinated. The National Basketball Association said earlier this week it would not force players to take the vaccine, but a report from July found that 90% of players were vaccinated.
