With Don Cherry’s recent comments about immigrants and poppies, that subsequently got him fired from Hockey Night in Canada, diversity in hockey is under the microscope.
10 year NHL veteran Dan Carcillo used social media to voice his displeasure with hockey culture, Carcillo has been a mental health advocacy since his retirement from the NHL in 2015.
Carcillo said from Don Cherry to Mike Babcock to Bill Peters abuse has always been ripe in the hockey community.
“I’ve been saying this for a long time, abuse is ripe in every level of hockey. If you don’t think it is take a look at what’s happening at the National Hockey League” -Dan Carcillo, Retired NHL Player
