The “avid hockey fan” shared his concerns about the league with TVA’s Pierre Bruneau on Tuesday.
“For the NHL, this is a dangerous situation,” Harper said. “It’s sad to see the relationship so broken.”

In the mean time, Harper said he’ll divert his puck-loving attention to the upcoming 2013 World Junior tournament.
