Kevin Weekes, NHL Network analyst and former NHL player (@kevinweekes) - "For those that asked : I'm extremely disappointed with what happened to Wayne Simmonds tonight in London Ont. We've taken HUGE steps to grow the game of hockey, as I speak Willie O'Ree and I are in D.C attending the Black Congressional Caucus on behalf of the #NHL & ironically this takes place:( There's NO place for this in sports since sport connects us not divides us. Much love to all the true&Classy #NHL Fans."
