The NHL Players’ Association is recommending that players who participate in Olympic orientation camps this summer “seriously consider” purchasing additional insurance coverage in the event of injury because their contracts do not cover activities at the camps.
“The league has taken the position that our members’ Standard Player Contracts (SPC) will not cover activities at the Orientation Camps, and that they will therefore be participating at their own risk,” said Paul Kelly, NHLPA executive director, in a statement.
“Following discussions with Hockey Canada and USA Hockey, they have recently agreed to increase the insurance coverage they are providing to our members invited to their Orientation Camps,” he continued.
“Unfortunately the federations’ insurance coverage is still very limited.”
