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."

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
