The clock is ticking on a settlement between the members of the U.S. Women’s National Team and USA Hockey.
The team is slated to participate in a training camp in Traverse City starting next Wednesday, with the 2017 IIHF Women’s World Championship kicking off at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth on March 31.
Yesterday, the team announced a boycott of the tournament until a new agreement was reached with the governing body in terms of compensation and aid for the players; a statement from USA Hockey later in the day did not change the women’s stance.
Today, the players are circulating this graphic, which says they still want to participate in the tournament in Plymouth:

The image has been shared by other members of the national team, as well.
