Last-minute talks could end US women’s hockey boycott of world championships – Los Angeles Times

Top players from the U.S. women’s hockey team are meeting with USA Hockey officials for last-minute talks that could end a planned boycott of the upcoming world championships.

Captain Meghan Duggan led a contingent that included Hilary Knight and twins Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando to a meeting at their lawyers’ office in Philadelphia on Monday.

A spokesman for the athletes said they had no comment as of midday.

The two sides have been negotiating for more than a year over compensation for players and support for the women’s program as a whole, including funds for travel, staff, equipment and junior development.
