NHL Seeks To Dismiss Concussion Lawsuit By Former Players
ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — It’s a rough and tumble, fast and physical game played on a sheet of ice. But former National Hockey League players are engaged in another role inside the Burger Federal Courthouse in St. Paul.
Players like former Minnesota North Star Brad Maxwell said the league embraced the heavy hits and rough play. Unfortunately, Maxwell said, many of his friends and fellow players are suffering the long-term consequences of past concussions.
