NHL Opens Up A Cold One

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

The NHL and Molson Coors won big on Tuesday when the Ontario Court of Appeal upheld their $375-million sponsorship deal.

Rival brewery Labatt was the loser, as the court upheld Molson’s appeal of a lower court decision that rejected the agreement between the NHL and Molson for the league’s North American rights beginning with the 2011-12 season. Labatt argued the NHL improperly broke off a sponsorship agreement with them for the league’s Canadian rights to strike the deal with Molson.
