The IIHF Rules on Russia

Sports leagues and federations around the world are taking action. Jeff and Elliotte discuss the decision by the IIHF (00:01) to suspend “all Russian and Belarusian national and club teams” until further notice as well as withdrawing Russia’s hosting rights of the 2023 World Junior Championship. The guys also talk about the NHLs statement as it relates to Russia, how Russian and Ukrainian players in North America are responding to the invasion of Ukraine, and what their leagues are doing to support them (7:30).

They also get to some news from around the league including the meeting that took place last week between the Coyotes and the NHLPA (13:30), what Vancouver might do as we approach the trade deadline (22:30), if the Maple Leafs should be concerned following a wild night in Detroit (26:40), a losing streak that’s caught our eye (31:10), Elliotte addressed a production complaint (33:20), and the guys take your questions to wrap things up (39:20).

Plus, a surprise storytime cameo at the end of the podcast from a former NHLer (52:00). Thank you, Andrew Peters!

Here is the Togiai vs Togiai brother fight that Jeff referenced in the podcast.

This podcast is produced and mixed by Amil Delic, and hosted by Jeff Marek and Elliotte Friedman.
