New three on three pro hockey league to steal multiple NHL players

For weeks now, it has been addressed that a new Hockey league is coming to North America this fall. the new name is the major hockey league, which will only feature three on three play.
The game of featured 2 periods, with 24 minutes in each period and one intermission in between.
Now Elliotte Friedman has dropped a report on when the details will be coming out:
«I do expect some kind of announcement during the Stanley Cup Final about this, a revelation as to exactly what this is, what the goals are and what they are trying to do,» Friedman said. «I think the picture is going to become a bit more clear some time during the Cup Final.»

Each team will reportedly have $30 million dollars in salary cap, and have the opportunity to earn $100,000 win bonus for each game.
«I think a bunch of players have reached out and are curious about it If there's a chance to play hockey for legitimate money, people are going to be interested,» Friedman said.

Friedman went on to say that he believes Phil Kessel would automatically earn a roster spot in this new three-on-three league that actually pays players well.
«It's true that the league would make a great marketing coup.»

After failing to earn a contract after a professional tryout with the Vancouver Canucks, this seems like a golden opportunity for Phil Kessel to keep his career going.
