The situation in American over the last several days has been extremely volatile, and that is frankly putting things mildly. People have seemingly completely forgotten about the dangers of COVID-19 and have taken to the streets to protest what they feel are injustices in the country. Unfortunately those protests have often devolved into violence, violence at times that has had a direct impact on National Hockey League personnel or even monuments erected to honor NHL legends but throughout all this the athletes of the NHL have sent messages of support.
We've compiled some of the message from players around the league all in one place and here are some of the more prominent ones:
San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture was seemingly worried about offending when he published this message:
San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane made fiery statements during an interview and those were quickly supported by the Sharks themselves.
Winnipeg Jets forward Blake Wheeler also felt the need to speak out, writing that he felt it important he say it in his own words.
Nashville Predators forward Kyle Turris vowed to do his best to try and make the world a better place.
New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban issued a message of unity.
Morgan Rielly of the Toronto Maple Leafs actually released a short video to share his thoughts on the matter.
Keep in mind these are only a few examples of the many that are out there.
