This is a massive development as the NHL most recently announced that in replacement of the 2025 NHL All-Star game, the NHL will host it's first ever in-season tournament called The Four Nations Faceoff, with Canada being one of the countries represented in the tournament.
It says that the suspensions do not include the tournament, but decisions have yet to be made regarding the 2026 Winter Olympics in northern Italy.
"This does not include a suspension for next year's Four Nations Faceoff, as that event that will be run by the NHL/NHLPA. It remains unclear if exceptions will be made if the suspensions remain through the 2026 Olympics."
