The NHL plans to have a little chat with Eugene Melnyk after the Senators’ owner publicly commented about the lockout earlier this week.
“The league has a long-standing policy against club personnel speaking on collective bargaining matters,” deputy commissioner Bill Daly wrote in an email to the Ottawa Citizen. “It’s a serious policy and one that is well-founded in purpose and rationale.”
On Wednesday, Melnyk told Sportsnet radio he was worried about the damage the lockout was doing and that “we should be playing hockey by now. Everybody knows it, and we’re not.”
It’s not clear if Melnyk will be fined. Daly said the league wants to “understand the circumstances and context” of the comments first.
