Frye stated there’s additionally the chance that gamers might be excluded from Russian nationwide groups in the future, like tennis’s Davis Cup, the Olympic groups or the nationwide hockey and soccer groups. He stated even taking a impartial place is frowned upon, and there’s the menace of lengthy jail sentences for individuals who criticize the invasion.

Despite the battle and uncertainty, the N.H.L.’s Russians play on.

But it might’t be simple. You simply really feel for everybody.”
