NHL EMBRACES HOLIDAY ROSTER FREEZE

Ian, or any hockey bettors.. Can this create any betting value this time of year?

NHL embraces holiday roster freeze as a popular tradition:

No deals have been made that close to Christmas in the decades since thanks to an oddity in major North American professional sports: The NHLs holiday roster freeze, which allows players to breathe easy for more than a week each December. Teams cant trade, waive or loan players to the minors from Dec. 18 at 11:59 p.m. to Dec. 27 at 12:01 a.m., save for a few injury exceptions.

Its kind of a common-sense thing, and I think its good for hockey, Young said. What does it turn into if theres no trade freeze at all? It turns into whos going to outwork the other guy and make a deal on Christmas morning when his kids are opening up presents? You dont want it to be like that.

Players can be traded or waived in the NBA and released in the NFL on Christmas Eve or on the holiday itself. The NBAs Houston Rockets waived guard Jeremy Lin on Christmas in 2011, the New Orleans Pelicans traded Ish Smith to the Philadelphia 76ers on Christmas Eve in 2015 leading to the release of Tony Wroten and the Pittsburgh Steelers cut running back Daryl Richardson last year on Christmas Eve.
