U.S. Women’s Hockey Team Will Sit out World Championships in Pay Protest
NEW YORK -- The U.S. women's hockey team is skipping a big tournament in its own backyard to make a point about fair pay. The women say they will sit out the International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship, which starts later this month in Michigan, unless they can make progress in negotiations with USA Hockey, the sport's governing body in the United States.
