Let’s Make the NHL Hear Us

Out  of sheer frustration at the NHL’s outright refusal to take sexual assault and domestic violence seriously, I put up a petition. If you’re so inclined, please take a moment to sign. Hopefully with enough signatures we can finally get the league’s attention.

If you’re not familiar with the NHL’s sa/dv problem, take a moment to read up on the shameful way the Los Angeles Kings have handled Slava Voynov in the wake of his conviction for brutalizing his wife; the ongoing Patrick Kane investigation and the Chicago Blackhawks’ insistence on actively promoting that player despite an ongoing rape investigation; and the Nashville Predators’ whitewashing of Mike Ribeiro’s sexual assault on his nanny.

Feel free to use the comments section to ask any questions you might have. That will be a safe space – I won’t approve any comments that are abusive or otherwise offensive.
