Report: U.S. women to vote on deal to avoid worlds boycott
USA Today, citing a person with knowledge of the situation, is reporting that USA Hockey has struck a tentative four-year deal with members of the U.S. women’s national team that would avert a boycott of the upcoming world championship in Plymouth, Michigan.
The players are expected to vote on the deal today. No financial details were reported. The players have been seeking a living wage.
The U.S. is scheduled to play Canada on Friday at USA Hockey Arena.
Deal between USA Hockey and women's team has hit snag and may take some time to resolve. It's contract-language related, not money-related.— Ken Campbell (@Ken_Campbell27) March 28, 2017
