Yup, the IIHF, IOC, FIFA and most sports regulatory bodies fall under the jurisdiction of the Court of Arbitration for Sport and ultimately the Swiss legal system. They could always try breaking their contracts and appealing the IIHF suspension but it would be taking a huge risk. FIFA seems to have even tighter controls over player movement as well as frequent player transfers and their rules have stood up so I would say it is unlikely the IIHF's would be over ruled.
