“We had these conversations earlier with the George Floyd killing of continuing the conversation, furthering the conversation, everybody wanting to be better and making sure that we’re more vocal and we do better moving forward,” Kane remarks.

“Here’s another example, unfortunately, but it’s also another example of the lack of with regards to our league and our players and our media that cover our game.”

“It’s not just my responsibility as a minority player in the NHL to be talking about these issues… We need to be better.”@evanderkane_9 joined @DavidAmber to discuss how the NHL can do more to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Kane also spoke out on Twitter about his feelings on the NHL’s lack of action.

Actually it’s incredibly insulting as a black man in hockey the lack of action and acknowledgement from the @nhl, just straight up insulting.

His comments come after a 1-day strike took over the sports world, beginning with the Milwaukee Bucks refusing to take the court for their scheduled playoff match against the Orlando Magic. The initial action led to cancellations in the NBA, WNBA, and MLS schedule according to theGrio.

We the @TheOfficialHDA have formally requested the @NHL to suspend all playoffs games today. We strongly feel this sends a clear message to that human rights take priority over sports. We should not stay silent towards systemic racism and any racial inequalities in our society.

What’s more important, shining a light on social justice, police reform and inequalities of the black and brown community or playing hockey games that generate revenue for a billion dollar industry? This decision should be an easy one….come on now y’all! It’s time to wake up!!!
