10 million people in China watched the last gold medal men's hockey game. Which was probably at an awkward viewing time. In Russia, the time of games will be much more accessible for Asia. Which is the next growth market for hockey. And even more so for the olympics after that.

Also of note, every nhl has to make at least one foreign trip during this CBA. So obviously international expansion of hockey has been a mandate for the league.
