Pyeongchang urges NHL to re­con­sider Olympic po­si­tion

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

PARIS - The pres­i­dent of the Pyeongchang Olympic or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee is still hop­ing for an NHL U-turn.

“I don’t think they made the fi­nal de­ci­sion so far,” com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Lee Hee-beom said Mon­day at a news con­fer­ence. “(There is) still room to dis­cuss and ne­go­ti­ate.”

Lee met with In­ter­na­tional Ice Hockey Fed­er­a­tion Pres­i­dent Rene Fasel in Paris on Mon­day morn­ing to dis­cuss the is­sue. Paris is co-host­ing the hockey world cham­pi­onship with the Ger­man city of Cologne, with the quar­ter­fi­nals later this week. He said he hopes fur­ther ne­go­ti­a­tion with the NHL will prove fruit­ful.
