Can the NHL have a smoking ban?
The NHL has not announced a smoking policy, but the league has been vocal in its opposition to the substance.
The NHLPA and other NHL players have called for a ban on all tobacco products, including cigars, pipe tobacco, chewing tobacco and pipe, as well as any other tobacco products.
The NBA and the NHLPA also want the league to adopt a policy banning the use of tobacco products in all arenas.
The NHL, which has a history of playing with the league’s smoke ban, has not made a smoking plan public.
Players have said they will take the issue up with the NHL and union representatives in a meeting.
