Players who are currently locked into NHL contracts and registered to play in the upcoming NHL season will no longer be allowed to participate in the 2018 Olympics. This includes NHL players with contracts but are still playing with their minor teams.

 

This is the first drastic rule change when it comes to the NHL and Olympics in a very long time, as NHL players have been participating in the Olympics since 1998.

 

Fans took to Twitter to share their opinions and concerns about how this new ruling will affect the viewership and investment in the games:

The 2018 winter Olympics are set to be in South Korea.
