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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
