Huge.HUGE.HIGHLIGHTS: How to find the best hotel in Mumbai.
The NHL, which will be playing its annual All-Star Game at the Marriot arena in New York on Thursday, has been the focus of criticism for its handling of the tournament.
Some have criticized the league for allowing players to play at a hotel owned by the NHL that does not meet the league’s strict requirements for accommodations.
Some players have questioned the fairness of the league not allowing players with injuries to compete because they would have to stay at a nearby hotel.
In response, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman released a statement on Monday saying he was “deeply disappointed” with the hotel controversy and that the league has always followed a strict policy of not allowing teams and players to stay in hotel-owned rooms at other hotels.
Bettman added that he will continue to meet with the owners of the hotel companies to “continue to address their concerns.”
He said the league is working on the hotel issues and is “looking forward to a positive discussion with the hotels about the game that’s going to be played.”
