The biggest case that the NHL is involved in is definitely the one concerning the 2018 Team Canada scandal.

After months of silence on the case, it seems the authorities are preparing to file official criminal charges.

Police to Arrest Five Players

Not only will these players suffer consequences from the NHL, but they will also be arrested.
It's only a matter of days before the Ontario police file charges.
"And just last week, Quebec police sources told Radio-Canada that Ontario police were about to file charges, and that it was a matter of days.

Slow Investigation

Both the public and the NHL have voiced their dissatisfaction with the pace of the police investigation.
It was reported that a verdict would be reached in March 2023, but here we are, almost six months later, with no conclusion.
The NHL isn't any better. They don't have a "specific timetable to share at this time."
However, don't be surprised if their verdict is announced soon after the police's.
"Asked whether the NHL will announce any resolution on the 2018 WJC investigation prior to NHL training camps opening, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said via email he does not 'have a specific timetable to share at this time'"

We can't wait to see how this ends.
