Bosman
The limitations on the use of overseas players in ice hockey teams across Europe was affected by the ruling in the European Court on the case of football player Jean-Marc Bosman. Basically, any player holding a passport of a member country of the European Economic Community (EEC) could play hockey in any member country without restriction. This dramatically affected the rules on imports and dual nationals in all countries across the EEC and had a big impact on hockey teams in those countries.
