Negotiations Continue Between USA Hockey And U.S. Women’s National Team

from A.J. Perez of USA TODAY,

An agreement between USA Hockey and the members of the U.S. women's national hockey team wasn't ratified on Monday, although there remains some hope a deal could be worked out before the IIHF Women's World Championships begin later this week.

Monday's emergency board meeting didn't yield a deal that would mark the end of the threatened boycott by the 23 players, and negotiations are expected to continue on Tuesday, two people with knowledge of the content of the meetings who are not authorized to speak publicly told USA TODAY Sports.

About 70 of the 90 members of USA Hockey's board of directors took part in the meeting held via teleconference, which lasted more than three hours.
