Women’s hockey play­ers dispute wage numbers.

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

Women play­ers are CALL­ING USA Hockey’s char­ac­ter­i­za­tion of their wage de­mands “patently false” after the or­ga­ni­za­tion stated it would ex­ceed $8 mil­lion in an Olympic year and $5.7 mil­lion in a nonO­lympic year.

USA Hockey posted com­pen­sa­tion es­ti­mates on its web­site and said it would con­tact play­ers’ lawyers in an ef­fort to re­solve the on­go­ing la­bor dispute. Play­ers have threat­ened to boy­cott the up­com­ing world cham­pi­onships on home ice un­less sig­nif­i­cant progress is made to­ward a new con­tract after 14 months of ne­go­ti­a­tions.

USA Hockey es­ti­mated a rate of $237,000 per player for win­ning gold at the Olympics and $149,000 per player in non-Olympic years.
