Enjoy the highlights of past Canada Olympic wins..cause it’s all going to change next year.
The NHL announced that they and it’s players will not participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
The NHL, it’s Players Association and IIHF(Int’l Ice Hockey Federation) have been negotiating for months…and it nothing came of it.
So the NHL says they are going ahead and scheduling next season as usual, and in a press release they say that the matter is “closed” http://tinyurl.com/mlra5l5
This is all about $$$ IMO..The NHL wanted more compensation for sending their players.
But some players like Alex Ovechkin say they don’t care, they are going to the Olympics.
We’ll See. The NHL has been in every Olympics since 1998.
