Hockey in China and the NHL’s Uncertainty
China’s government is investing in the growth of hockey’s popularity in the country with the 2022 Beijing Olympics right around the corner. However, the stance of National Hockey League (NHL) remains uncertain in the country due to its decision not to let its players participate in the PyeongChang Olympics in 2018. Missing out on another Olympics could negatively affect the NHL’s overall appeal among Asian audiences, especially with the NHL’s recent drive to establish global interest that includes a regular calendar for hockey events around the world, including China.
