Buzz: A World Cup and More Could Be Coming Soon

According to Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, part of the deal that the NHL/NHLPA and IIHF agreed to that will send players to Sochi in 2014 for the Winter Olympics also includes a World Cup in 2015 and a Victoria Cup.

The Victoria Cup would see NHL teams play the champions from European leagues.

The President of Hockey Canada, Bob Nicholson, said that he hopes for more international events including the World Cup and Victoria Cup.

The last two World Cup’s took place in 1996, when Team USA won, and in 2004, when Team Canada won.
