The Calgary Flames have filed a $125 million lawsuit against their insurance companies. The NHL team is seeking reimbursements for ‘massive losses’ it suffered due to the two hockey seasons that have gone by during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NHL initially brought its operations to a halt on March 12, 2020, due to the pandemic.

Since the NHL placed its operations on hold, teams calling Canada home were particularly impacted by the Canadian government’s mandates which prevented fans from attending games.

The NHL as well as 20 other clubs had filed similar lawsuits to that of the Calgary Flames back in June 2021. These lawsuits included the other five NHL teams based in Canada.

All told, the teams are seeking over $1 billion in loss reimbursement relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
