Lacking commercial value, NHL still refuses players to participate in the Winter Olympics

The NHL League is still reluctant to play at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

In an audio program, the host discussed NHL players’ participation in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. NHL players want to take part in the Winter Olympics, but the League boss rejected the idea on the grounds that players are at risk of injury, lack of business interests and will interrupt the regular season.

Earlier, the International Olympic Committee and the International Ice Hockey Federation said in a meeting in New York that if NHL players can board the Winter Olympics, they will allow NHL to use the promotion rights of the Winter Olympics. They will also provide financial support to NHL players participating in the Winter Olympics, including financial subsidies for the Winter Olympics, player insurance, travel expenses, etc.
