Our Missions & Causes in Hockey
The NHL is currently being sued by more than 100 of its former players. The suit alleges that the league did not do enough to protect or forewarn them about the possible consequences of concussions. Ice hockey is one of the few sports where lax rules allow players to fight on the ice with or without a 5 minute cool-down penalty. This section deals with current issues that expose players to a higher incidence of concussion and associated progressive neurological disorders and what measures we need to take in order to make Hockey a safer sport.
