Trump Policy Forces NHL Canadian Players out of U.S -Will Leafs Lose Matthews?

President Trump’s America First policy will hit the NHL harder than other sports leagues.

With the majority of NHL teams located in the US but only 15% of it’s players American, it will be a disaster. There will have to be a major swap of players. Fans won’t know their teams anymore.

President Trump’s policies are true to his campaign promises to create American jobs, but he does it like a showman. “Trump’s forte is promotion, he knows that job creation takes a while to have impact so he is looking at hitting industries with high visibility.” Say spokes insiders.

Imagine what Leafs Nation will do if  Auston Matthews goes back to Arizona?”

With all Canadian and other foreign Players leaving the US there will be a huge void of professional players.

American’s will want (or may be forced by Trump) to go back to play in the US.

 “Auston Matthews is the best thing to happen to the Toronto Maple Leafs in decades. Imagine what the fans and Leafs Nation will do if he goes back to Arizona?”

This means most American Minor League professionals, College players, and Junior National team players will be called up.

It’s not clear if Canadians will still be allowed to take US Hockey scholarships.

Many Canadian Players will have the opportunity to get US citizenship and green cards. Read More> However this will prevent them from representing Canada at the Olympics.

NHL Commissioner has not yet commented on the situation or how it impacts his league expansion plans.
