NHL Attempts to Score, Gets Shut Out Of Diversity Month

P.K Subban on the Montreal Canadiens

The NHL wanted to hit the ice with sharp skates and tight laces ready to go with an attempt to virtue signal by making February Hockey Is For Everyone month.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman had this to say:

“Our Clubs, our players and our fans are committed to welcoming everyone to hockey. While the NHL family strives for diversity and inclusiveness all year-long, February is Hockey Is For Everyone month, which will highlight, on a daily basis, the many ways our sport brings greater attention, heightened awareness and broader opportunities.”

One hitch in the plan….
February apparently already belongs to a group of people, Blacks.

It looks like the NHL is pinning two different groups against one another since this diversity month has more to do with homosexuality than race. Apparently being able to handle different types of sticks is a plus when you are on the ice.

Who will be in the penalty box after this fight for victim hood , Gays or Blacks? What about the homosexual blacks? Where do they fit in?

I happen to love the NHL, and just like other sports that have used their platform to push an agenda of diversity, I believe this will lead to many unhappy hockey fans. Actually, it already has.

Maybe the NHL should’ve just left well enough alone? However, the need to placate a very small sample of their audience has overridden any sense. When the SJW virus spreads it’ll take more than a team doctor to cure it.
