• Donald Fehr sees the opportunity to grow the game internationally. "There is an enormous opportunity in this sport internationally that doesn't exist in other sports. The NFL is primarily watched in the U.S. Basketball has made tremendous inroads abroad but is still primarily U.S. Major League Baseball is American except for some presence in Japan. Hockey is different. It has an audience in North America and across Europe. There is an opportunity to create cross-Atlantic events of various sorts that could create audiences on both sides. I don't know of another sport that can do that. That's pretty exciting to me." [IIHF]
