Now, it gives you an error. Because it’s a subdomain on NHL.com, we can rule out the domain lease ending, which means, this was done deliberately.
There are two realistic reasons for pulling the site. First, and the more realistic option, the league is planning to announce the NHL Awards are returning to Las Vegas in 2016, and they are designing a new page promoting it.
