Several memorable moments have marked the history of hockey and will be forever etched in the memories of fans. One of these iconic moments includes Sidney Crosby's famous game-winning goal that led Team Canada to win the gold medal against the United States at the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Unfortunately, for the fans, NHL players were not granted permission by the league to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang and the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, which significantly diminished the interest and prestige of the competition.

As the world's best players like Sidney Crosby, Connor McDavid, and Nathan MacKinnon were absent, the Canadian team was represented by players like Rene Bourque, Derek Roy, and Wojtek Wolski in what was perceived as a diluted tournament in the world of hockey. Needless to say, this unfortunate decision had a major impact on viewership.

However, we may witness a major turnaround ahead of the 2026 Winter Olympics, which will be held in Milan and Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. According to Greg Wyshynski, NHL executives and the NHL Players' Association are currently in discussions to allow players to represent their countries in this international competition.


Wow! That would be absolutely incredible!


It seems increasingly likely that NHL players will be present at the upcoming Olympics, and we are absolutely thrilled to hear this news. There's nothing better than a classic Canada vs. USA matchup to showcase the best of the best. We strongly hope that an agreement will be reached so that the world's top hockey players can compete in this prestigious tournament once again.

Just imagine a Canadian team featuring Connor McDavid, Nathan MacKinnon, Connor Bedard, Sidney Crosby, Cale Makar, and several other stars from the NHL. It would be absolutely incredible to see them all playing together for one tournament.

DESPITE THE ABSENCE OF NHL PLAYERS, DID YOU STILL WATCH THE CANADIAN TEAM DURING THE LAST OLYMPICS?
