In the new CBA, players no longer have to double up on the road. (Two players sharing a hotel room.)

In the old deal, players doubled up, unless you were an NHL veteran (10 years or 600 NHL games), or if you were a goaltender. (I guess goalies are a breed of their own.)

Donald Fehr couldn't believe this was the case when he became the head of the NHLPA, and he made a point to get this changed.

I always thought there was some benefit to having players room together. In many cases, teams would have a rookie room with a more established player, one who could show them the ropes, teach them how to be a professional, etc.

I suppose teams can still do this, but methinks players will probably enjoy having their own rooms. (Teams can't make their players room together. They have to agree to do so.)

The only exception in the new CBA is for players who are on entry level contracts.

For hotels which lost money during the lockout, this gives them a good opportunity to make back some lost money. They effectively doubled their accommodation revenues which they earn from NHL teams. Some teams house all the visiting teams, so this translates into some decent dollars for the hoteliers.
