The World Cup of Hockey is expected to be held in Toronto when it is reborn in September 2016, Sportsnet has learned.
The NHL and NHL Players’ Association are currently working on the final details of an agreement that will fill out the international calendar for the next several years and believe that the Air Canada Centre is the ideal location to relaunch the World Cup, according to multiple sources familiar with the discussions.
When the event was last held in 2004, it was split between seven different venues in North America and Europe. The final was held in Toronto and won by Team Canada.
Several different formats were considered for the relaunch of the event before the sides agreed that the biggest impact would be made in the world’s largest hockey market.
