NHL, NHLPA begin planning 2024 World Cup of Hockey; 'strong possibility' the event will be held in February

Feb 3, 2022

Per Pierre LeBrun: The NHL and NHLPA met last week to begin planning the 2024 World Cup of Hockey, and sources tell The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun there is a "strong possibility" the event will be held in February instead of the usual September window.

The NHLPA has suggested the February timeframe in the past, but owners did not want it to disrupt the season. It appears the NHL is potentially onboard and the World Cup could return in two years' time.
