FOUR PLAYERS KNEEL IN STARS VS GOLDEN KNIGHTS GAME TO SHOW SUPPORT AGAINST RACIAL INJUSTICE

During the anthem of the Dallas Stars and Vegas Golden Knights game, four players in Tyler Seguin, Jason Dickinson, Ryan Reaves, and Robin Lehner, took a knee to show their support against racial injustice.

These four are the first NHL players suited up for a game to take knee during the national anthem. Minnesota Wild defenceman Matt Dumba knelt earlier in the week, but it came after he delivered a speech prior to the Edmonton Oilers and Chicago Blackhawks game, so he was not in his gear. While Dumba chose to kneel for only the American anthem, the four players from today's game knelt for the entirety of both the American and Canadian anthem. It should be noted that Dumba raised a fist for both anthems during the Minnesota Wild and Vancouver Canucks game Sunday night.



The Golden Knights and Stars are playing each other for the first and only time in the round robin tournament. This will determine the seeding once the play-in round is finished. The other two teams in the Western Conference competing in the round robin are the St. Louis Blues and the Colorado Avalanche.
