NHL, NHLPA will not hold World Cup of Hockey 2020
The NHL and the NHLPA had another constructive meeting today in Toronto. While the parties have now jointly concluded that it is no longer realistic to try to schedule a World Cup of Hockey for the fall of 2020, they plan to continue their dialog with a hope of being able to schedule the next World Cup event as part of a broader agreement, which would include a long-term international event calendar.

Toronto - January 17, 2019 - The NHL and NHL Players' Association on Wednesday jointly announced there will not be a World Cup of Hockey 2020.

The NHL statement said:

"The NHL and the NHLPA had another constructive meeting today in Toronto. While the parties have now jointly concluded that it is no longer realistic to try to schedule a World Cup of Hockey for the fall of 2020, they plan to continue their dialog with a hope of being able to schedule the next World Cup event as part of a broader agreement, which would include a long-term international event calendar."

The NHLPA statement said:

"The players are focused on finding the proper time to schedule the World Cup of Hockey within the context of an overall international hockey calendar. While we and the League have discussed the possibility of holding the next World Cup in September 2020, we jointly concluded that it is unrealistic to expect that preparations for the event would be completed in time.

"We look forward to continuing our discussions with the League."

The World Cup of Hockey 2016 was held in Toronto. Team Canada defeated Team Europe for the championship.
