NHL, NHLPA Meeting With IOC, IIHF On Insuring Players In Sochi

Representatives of the NHL, NHLPA, IOC and IIHF will meet today in N.Y. "in hopes of making progress on the thorny issue of who will pay the multimillion-dollar costs of insuring the league's players" at the '14 Sochi Games. No deal is expected today, but the meeting could be an "important step because estimates from the insurance and travel companies should be made available to the parties" today "or shortly afterward" (GLOBE & MAIL, 4/12). Sources said that "travel, insurance and hospitality for players' and owners' families remain issues" (ESPN.com, 4/10).
