Dan Carcillo retired from the NHL three years ago at the age of 30. During his nine-year career, he was one of hockey’s most notorious agitators. You loved him when he was wearing your team’s jersey and loved to hate him when he wasn’t. But now the player who earned nine career suspensions is trying to make a different kind of impact. He is speaking out about the dangers of concussions and calling on the NHL to do more to protect and educate its players.

The lawsuit alleged NHL negligence in the treatment of head injuries and also claimed that the league withheld information on the long-term risks of head trauma associated with playing hockey. The agreement included payments that cannot exceed $18.92 million in total, but did not require the NHL to admit liability for any of the plaintiffs’ claims. Carcillo says he will opt out … [Read more...] about A former NHL agitator is fighting the league over the dangers of head trauma in hockey

Sections Skip to content Skip to site index Should a high school star be prevented from playing college basketball because his father was accused of taking a bribe? Brian Bowen Jr. Credit Credit Nico Young for The New York Times Supported by ByMichael Sokolove Sept. 18, 2018 Brian Bowen Jr. was one of the top high-school basketball players in the senior class of 2017. He grew up in Saginaw, Mich., an economically depressed Rust Belt city with one of the highest rates of violent crime in the nation. It is also a basketball hotbed, where players take pride in their scrappy, physical style of play. Draymond Green, an intense, sharp-elbowed All-Star with the N.B.A. champion Golden State Warriors, is among the pros who have come from Saginaw. Bowen, however, was not hardened by either his city or its tough-edged basketball tradition. There is a sweetness about him, a shy smile, an engaging manner. He was given the nickname “Tugs” as an … [Read more...] about The College Recruit and the Downfall of a Hall of Fame Coach

ByBenjamin Hoffman July 30, 2018 In an eventful N.B.A. off-season, a curious thing happened: One of the greatest players to play the game — a sure Hall of Famer — was traded for spare parts in a salary dump. If that were not bad enough, the team that acquired him then bought out his contract and released him. Weeks later, the same situation is playing out for another certain Hall of Famer. We are, of course, talking about Dwight Howard and Carmelo Anthony, two players as polarizing as they are accomplished. For much of their careers, they were in the game’s highest tier, widely considered to be top 10 players, if not top five. … [Read more...] about Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard Are Hall of Famers.
