Firstly only Canadians are essential workers are allowed to enter Canada, Bettman is neither, and secondly I highly doubt he entered Canada 15 days ago to do the 14 day quarantine.
The rules have changed. Fully vaccinated travelers no longer need to quarantine upon arrival.
Bettman is fine, as long as he arrived after 12:01 a.m. yesterday.

Nope... Only fully vaccinated Canadians can now re-enter Canada without having to quarantine. Non Canadians still aren’t allowed to enter Canada unless they’re doing an essential service in Canada, or if they’ve been granted special permission to enter Canada for a family emergency. No part of Bettmans role as the commissioner of the NHL could possibly be deemed an essential service.

Rules were changed at the beginning of June for the final 2 playoff rounds.
The NHL will be able to play in Canada, as needed, for the final two rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after a decision by Canada's government Sunday to issue an exemption for cross-border travel.

The decision allows teams to cross the United States-Canada border for games under a modified quarantine, starting with the Stanley Cup Semifinals. The teams will also be subject to enhanced protocols.

"The National Hockey League is very appreciative of the decision by the Canadian government and the Federal health officials to allow the Canadian team that advances to the Stanley Cup Semifinals and, potentially, the Final, to host games in their own rinks," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said Sunday.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Only players, coaching staff and trainers should have been given an exemption to cross into Canada for the series, there’s no good reason why American NHL dignitaries should have been given a free pass into our country, I’m pretty sure that a Canadian could have been appointed to present the cup if it had been won last night. Heck even our PM had to quarantine for 14 days when he returned to Canada from his meetings in Europe.
