Every year the Generel Managers get together for their annual meetings, but it's not very often that the NHL is forced to call an emergency meeting.

These things are usually planned with months of prep-time, but today something happened that forced the NHL to act quickly.

According to NHL insider Michael Russo, the NHL has called a meeting to address the bankruptcy of one of the leagues biggest partners.

Told the NHL is holding a Board of Governors call in 15 mins





This is going to call an issue with multiple U.S. based teams, which is the focal point of the meeting:

BREAKING: The Diamond Sports subsidiary of Sinclair Broadcast Group has skipped a $140 million debt payment



This missed payment could result in teams like LA, Anaheim, Arizona, Dallas, St. Louis, Minnesota, Detroit, Columbus, Nashville, Carolina, Tampa Bay, and Florida all losing their coverage, so they wont have any TV deals!

All these teams were being covered by Bally Sports networks. This could have a huge impact on financials in the NHL.
