NHL Commissioner: ‘Suppose we do not go’ to the 2018 Winter Olympics

Hockey fans hoping to see their favorite NHL players compete for the gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea are likely to be disappointed.

The International Olympic Committee and the NHL have not worked out their differences in recent months, and the NHL is unlikely to allow its players to compete in the Olympics as a result.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman painted a bleak picture Tuesday in his latest update on the Olympic situation.

Closing down the league for several weeks while the Olympics play out is among the NHL’s topics, though one could argue that an exciting Olympic hockey tournament could add even more interest to the latter part of the NHL’s regular season.
