Amidst the ongoing wage disputes surrounding Team USA women's hockey, the men are reportedly considering joining the fight.

Team USA women's hockey team has said they will boycott the upcoming World Championships in Plymouth, MI because of low wages. 

Today, sports agent and lawyer Allan Walsh tweeted that American players on the men's side may boycott the Worlds as well in a show of solidarity. 

The NHL Players Association has already come out in support of the women. 

There was reportedly a tentative deal in place between USA Hockey and the players last week and there is an emergency board meeting scheduled for Monday at noon to vote on that deal.
