Gary Bettman and the NHL have made a major decision regarding the Stanley Cup.

BY MARCO    JUNE 2, 2023  (9:29)
The Stanley Cup Final kicks off this Saturday, featuring the Vegas Golden Knights against the Florida Panthers. Let's just say it's quite a surprise, since not many people would have bet on such a scenario.

Less surprising is Gary Bettman's and the NHL's decision regarding the Cup winners. For the 2nd year in a row, the precious trophy will not be going to Russian soil.



This means that no matter which team wins, the Russian-born player who plays for them (Sergei Bobrovsky with the Panthers and Ivan Barbachev of the Golden Knights) won't be able to take home the famous trophy.
