NHL issues statement on concussion suit
NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly issued a statement today regarding a class action lawsuit filed today in federal court in Washington.

Bill Daly, Deputy Commissioner of the National Hockey League, today released the following statement in response to the filing of a class action lawsuit by a group of former NHL players:

"We are aware of the class action lawsuit filed today in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of a group of former NHL Players. While the subject matter is very serious, we are completely satisfied with the responsible manner in which the League and the Players' Association have managed Player safety over time, including with respect to head injuries and concussions. We intend to defend the case vigorously and have no further comment at this time."

I've been so fortunate, blessed, to play a long time with some great players and be on power plays, play in some great cities and stuff. It's been fun.
