051: Reactionary Performatism... or the NHL?
The NHL and it’s players had to face their second test after many promised to listen, learn and be a part of change.

This past week we saw first hand why it’s important for people and players of color to be in the room, during these conversations and if the NHL or it’s players want to actually be a part of change, why they must demand it.
