Bernie Nicholls: Concussion lawsuit is 'for the guys beside me'
Since retiring in 1999 with 475 career goals, longtime NHL center Bernie Nicholls has never strayed far from the sport he loves. Whether as a participant at numerous hockey events or as a member of the Los Angeles Kings' coaching staff during L.A.'s 2012 Stanley Cup title run, he has always stayed close to the game. That passion extends to his involvement with All Sports Market, an online sports stock market that allows users to buy, sell and trade shares in their favorite sports teams.
But Nicholls' enduring hockey legacy might be his involvement in a federal class-action lawsuit against the NHL over concussion-related injuries. Nicholls isn't the only former player involved in the lawsuit, which was filed in Minnesota in 2014. But he just might be the most outspoken.
