Hayes sitting out? Fortunately for Flyers, crisis averted (thanks to Gritty)

Phew, crisis averted.

Kevin Hayes was worried about it. Gritty was up in arms about it.

But the hockey season can now move forward.

The NHL on Tuesday night announced its arena protocols for the 2020-21 campaign.

A section highly pertinent to the Flyers' outlook was participant groups, particularly Group 4 individuals.

Yup, Gritty will be allowed at Flyers game. It would have been tough to kick him out of the Wells Fargo Center, anyway ... he lives there.

Hayes, always loyal to his roommate, was contemplating a protest of the season if Gritty was not permitted at Flyers games. Those would have been two damaging losses for the Flyers.

Gritty will have no problem following the guidelines in place because of the coronavirus pandemic.
