NHL players will no longer be paid for bookings at games and events as a result of a new agreement with the NHL Players’ Association.
The NHLPA is also in talks with other players’ unions about making similar arrangements for events and tournaments.
“As part of the NHLPA-NHL Players’ Bargaining Agreement, which we recently ratified, we agreed that players and their families are the exclusive patrons of the games, events and/or contests at which they play, and that they are the sole patrons of those games, which include, but are not limited to, arenas, arenas and arenas-hosted games,” the NHL said in a statement.
“This agreement does not change the fact that any NHL player may use his name or likeness for promotional purposes, or that a player may participate in a game at the venue or event, or participate in any other activity at the arena or event.
The NHLPA has been in negotiations with other leagues and players’ associations about these issues for some time, and we remain committed to these discussions.”
Players’ association President Donald Fehr acknowledged the NHL’s move, but said the league has always maintained that players should have to pay for any tickets purchased.
“The players want to know what happens to them,” Fehr said.
“And so I would just say the players want a fair playing field and that everyone who plays should have equal access to the games and the events and the games should be free.
But that is not the case here.”
A new agreement will also be in place for the 2015-16 season.
It’s been a busy year for Juventus, as they’ve played a host of top teams in the Europa League and UEFA Europa Cup.
It’s now time for them to face their arch rivals Bayern Munich in the final of the Italian title on Wednesday, but there are still plenty of questions to answer before then.
Juve have had an outstanding start to the campaign, with the reigning Serie A champions having already beaten Bayern 3-1 in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 second round tie.
Juventus have taken the lead in the 1-0 first leg win over the Bundesliga champions, but were denied a second victory by a 2-1 win in the second leg.
Juve had a goal and an assist in the game, and scored two goals in the last 12 minutes as they won 4-2 on aggregate.
Bayern have not lost in the Bundesliga since October, and are now looking to repeat that form against Juventus.
The hosts were able to capitalise on the absence of Lionel Messi and company, with Mario Mandzukic setting up Sergio Busquets for his brace in the 90th minute.
The Italian giants are unbeaten in their last 11 Champions League matches against Juve, with Juve winning seven of the last eight encounters.
The New York Times app for iOS and Android has launched a new tool for users to login and read ebooks from the NYT website.
Users of the NYT iOS app can download the iOS app for free and then sign in using their Google account or an Amazon account to access the NYT app.
The NYT app, which allows users to access news articles, is a key part of the Times’ efforts to create a single interface for its digital content.
Users can then view articles, watch videos, search for information and browse the website.
The Times has long made it easy for people to access its digital media, but this new tool makes it easy to sign up for the app.
Users who are already using the NYT apps on Android can log in with their Google credentials.
But anyone who is not already a Times subscriber can also sign up with their Amazon account or a Yahoo account.
The New York Post, which publishes the New York Daily News, also is making the switch.
The NYT app is free for users on the Post’s mobile app and it also has the option to subscribe for $9.99 per month.
The switch is an example of the efforts the Times is making to grow its digital presence, which was once dominated by print.
The Times also has a print subscription service, but the NYT has been slowly embracing digital, even as print subscribers have been shrinking.
