Yale and Harvard were originally scheduled to play games against China's national development team, but these were abruptly cancelled. The ECAC said it was because the "national development team being unable to field a representative team."

What does this even mean? Did they literally not find enough players to make the trip? What is going on here? Why are Harvard and Yale scheduling flimsy games?
