Banned from playing in the National Hockey League for Logan Mailloux of the Montreal Canadiens: Gary Bettman might respond to the NHLPA if it takes too long

The situation regarding Logan Mailloux and his eligibility to play in the National Hockey League continues to be a topic of discussion.

In the past few hours, we've received new information thanks to the highly respected Pat Hickey, who was a guest on Tony Marinaro's podcast.

Even though Mailloux has made significant efforts towards self-improvement, he still hasn't received the green light to officially join the NHL, by getting a pardon from Commissioner Gary Bettman.

In short, as of now, Mailloux is still prohibited from playing in the NHL, even though he met with Bettman a few weeks ago.


The NHLPA might get involved, says Pat Hickey



On this matter, the veteran Hickey is simply astonished. He can't believe that the conclusion of this case is taking so long.

He even described the situation as absurd.

It makes no sense that Mailloux hasn't received the green light yet.

Another renowned journalist, Stu Cowan, even suggested that if the process is this complicated, it might be because Gary Bettman hasn't yet accepted the Canadiens' 2021 draft selection of Mailloux.

It might be the decision of one single person.

If there's a suspension, it's almost as much a suspension against the Canadiens as against Logan Mailloux. Bettman was furious when the Canadiens drafted him. And Bettman doesn't like when people refuse to follow his directives.- Stu Cowan

To be continued, but we all agree with Hickey. It doesn't make sense that the Mailloux case is dragging on like this, and it doesn't make sense that he's still sidelined from the NHL at this time.

Hickey concludes by saying, If they don't grant him permission to play, there will be a strong reaction from the Players' Association. They might get involved.
