As we saw in the 2023 World Baseball Classic, having top names on the international stage can do wonders for a North American sports league, and now, it appears Gary Bettman has seen the light.

A welcomed return

According to a report, the NHL and the NHLPA are now working towards a shocking return to the Olympics, with an international schedule set to be unveiled that would lead into the 2026 Winter Olypmics.

Nothing is quite set in stone yet, but with so much excitement around the international game and seeing the best of the best battle it out, this would do nothing but great things for the NHL on the biggest stage.

The NHL and NHLPA are in discussions to create an international competition for 2025 that would start a rotation of events, including a return to the Olympics in 2026.

With three years to go until the Olympics, there's time for things to change, but at this point in time, everything is looking like NHLers being allowed back on the biggest stage once more, which is a major win for the players and the league.
