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

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
