10 former hockey players sue NHL for concussion damages

Just months after a surprise $765 million settlement by the National Football League of a lawsuit by former players over concussion injuries, a group of former hockey players has filed a similar suit.

The 10 plaintiffs contend that the National Hockey League concealed the danger posed by concussions from them and seek medical monitoring and damages, the Associated Press reports. The suit was filed Monday in federal court in Washington, D.C.

The AP tried to reach the NHL for comment, but didn’t receive an immediate response.
