NHLPA Statement Regarding NHL’s Complaint and Unfair Labor Practice Charge

The National Hockey League Players' Assocation issued the following press release Friday:

TORONTO -- Statement from the NHLPA regarding NHL's Class Action Complaint and Unfair Labor Practice Charge:

"The NHLPA has just received a copy of the National Labor Relations Board charge and has not yet been served with the lawsuit. However, based on what we’ve learned so far, the NHL appears to be arguing that Players should be stopped from even considering their right to decide whether or not to be represented by a union. We believe that their position is completely without merit."

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
