It was a strange year for the NHL, but not one that ended well for the league.
The 2016-17 season was marred by a major suspension for the team’s captain, which included the suspension of the league’s head coach, Michel Therrien.
The NHL Players’ Association filed a grievance against the league with the National Hockey League Players Association in an attempt to get the suspension overturned.
The grievance said the league had violated the players’ labor agreement, which called for the suspension to be overturned, but it was denied.
The league’s appeal of the ruling is expected to be heard later this month.
The ruling in the grievance also forced the NHL to suspend players for one more season.
After that, the league has a new head coach in Todd McLellan and a new coach in Mike Babcock.
