Commissioner Bettman discusses 100 years of the NHL, new opportunities on the horizon and the importance the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing will have on the sport of ice hockey.

Gary Bettman has served the National Hockey League as Commissioner since 1 February, 1993, and has guided the world’s top professional hockey league through more than two decades of growth, on and off the ice.
