Stars, Knights Players Kneel In Support Of Social Justice

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Two players each from the Dallas Stars and Vegas Golden Knights knelt on the ice before their playoff game to support Black Lives Matter and other social causes.

Dallas forward Tyler Sequin and Jason Dickinson knelt alongside Vegas forward Ryan Reaves and goaltender Robin Lehner during the American and Canadian national anthems prior to their round-robin game.

Minnesota's Matt Dumba on Saturday became the first NHL player to kneel during the U.S. anthem, after he made a speech prior to a game between Edmonton and Chicago.
