It is now up to the NHL Players’ Association (NHLPA) to draft a new set of academic posters for the next season.
The NHLPA voted last summer to set up a task force to study the issue and is expected to present its recommendations at the upcoming annual board meeting in October.
A few weeks ago, the NHLPA set a target date of the start of the 2019-20 season.
If it is not reached by then, the players will be forced to look elsewhere.
That is not the only way to go about making changes to the way the game is presented to young players.
This is not just a hockey issue, but also a social issue, said NHLPA executive director John Davidson.
The issue of academic poster use in hockey was discussed at the NHL Board of Governors meeting last year, and Davidson said the players are very much aware of the issue.
“We are very conscious of this issue and we have taken a strong position that we want to make sure that we do everything we can to make this as transparent as possible,” Davidson said.
The league is not looking to have any of the posters removed, nor is it proposing a ban.
However, the posters are not allowed to be printed on players’ helmets, jerseys, or other clothing.
Davidson said it was important to get the issue addressed and the NHL is working with the NHLAA to ensure that there is no disruption to the season and that the players understand the implications.
“I don’t want to say that we are looking to change anything, but it would be inappropriate for us to make a decision about anything that we haven’t even discussed with the players yet,” Davidson added.
The players have been trying to figure out how to change the way they are presented.
This past season, the league decided to replace its academic posters with posters of professional hockey players that will be used to guide players through the game and will be displayed on all uniforms.
The posters will also be on jerseys, in the team store, and in the NHL Store.
Davidson also said the posters will be a part of the NHL’s digital initiative and will not be used in the same way.
Davidson suggested the league could use the posters as a guide for young players and the boards could even use them as a poster for the upcoming season.
Davidson added that there has been a lot of discussion about how the NHL could address this issue.
In addition, Davidson said he is not worried about how students will react to the new posters.
“This is a very difficult issue.
We have seen what happened with the student posters and this has been the subject of some discussion and discussion.
But the message that we will send out is that we expect young people to respect the game,” Davidson explained.
Davidson did say the NHL will continue to monitor the issue closely.
“If the boards decide to have posters of players and other members of the community on the boards, we will follow that and look at the impact that that might have on the players, on their families, on the game in general,” Davidson concluded.
