The American Hockey League (AHL) has decided not to honor its own players for the 2018 Olympic Games because of the words “Olympics” in their names.
The NHLPA announced in a statement on Tuesday that the players will not be recognized for their accomplishments.
The players are represented by the NHLPA, which is a member of the World Professional Hockey Organization (WPGO), and the players are hoping that the WPGO and the IOC will recognize their achievement.
This year’s Olympic games will take place on February 12-14, 2018.
The games are scheduled to be played in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and Sochi, Russia.
In their statement, the players said the players were not happy with the decision.
“We do not agree with this decision,” the statement read.
“While we believe the NHL should be able to honor the players for their contributions to the sport, we respectfully disagree that the NHL is best served by not honoring our players for accomplishments they have made and not participating in the Games.”
In addition to the players, other NHL alumni, including current and former players, current and future NHL players and the NHL’s President, Dale Tallon, signed the petition.
The petition has been signed by players, former players and former coaches from around the NHL, as well as the NHL Players’ Association.
The American Hockey Association is a membership organization of professional sports leagues and teams.
