German Players Were Not Told To Miss Olympic Camp

from Reuters,

The NHL players’ association (NHLPA) denied on Wednesday it had forced German ice hockey players to miss a pre-Olympic training camp because of concerns they would not be adequately insured in case of injury….

The NHLPA said it had never made any demands about insurance but had simply advised players that the training camps might not be providing enough to cover their contracts or future earnings should they get injured there.

“While our NHLPA members look forward to the opportunity to represent their countries at the Olympics, it is unreasonable to request that players participate in on-ice summer orientation sessions without sufficient insurance against injuries,” Paul Kelly, NHLPA executive director, said on Wednesday.
