Its been reported that NHL players and the NHL have met about a potential protest or walk out like the one we saw yesterday with the NBA over the events that have taken place this summer, and more importantly what happened in Wisconsin, here is the tweet.

The NBA shut down all of its games yesterday after the Bucks refused to take the court in the face of Jacob Blakes shooting. We are not aware at this time if the players will protest today or not. The Flyers, Islanders, Knights, and Canucks all have games tonight. To me it looks like the NHL is letting the players decided on what they want to do. The NHL is usually quiet when it comes to social issues, and that in itself is a problem to some people. Some said they feel the NHL missed an opportunity to be a part of something great yesterday.

Apparently according Barry Trotz, the Islanders player are considering boycotting tonight’s game to support what the NBA and MLB players did yesterday. Barry Trotz said “he will not hold his players back from doing so as he believes they have platform and they have the right to use it”.

Here are the tweets:

The Hockey Diversity Alliance is now calling on the NHL to postpone all of the games today. Stay tuned.

It has to be said that there are more important things going on that hockey, but we will have to wait and see what happens. But it sounds to me like the Islanders will not take the ice.
