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

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
