FILE - In this April 13, 2019, file photo, Team USA's Hilary Knight, left, celebrates a goal with Kelly Pannek, who provided the assist, during a IIHF Women's Ice Hockey World Championships semifinal match against Russia, in Espoo, Finland. More than 200 of the top female hockey players in the world have decided they will not play professionally in North America next season, hoping their stand leads to a single economically sustainable league. The announcement Thursday, May 2, 2019, comes after the Canadian Women's Hockey League abruptly shut down as of Wednesday, leaving the five-team, U.S.-based National Women's Hockey League as the only pro league in North America.
