Joel Ward: “I’ve Experienced A Lot Of Racism Myself In Hockey,” May Kneel For Anthem

Kudos, Joel Ward…kudos.

“Ward, who is from Canada and the son of immigrants from Barbados, wears no. 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson. If he makes the decision to become the first NHL player to kneel during the anthem, he has the support of head coach Pete DeBoer—who told the Mercury News, “I’m a big freedom of speech guy. Everyone has the right to message how they want to”—and general manager Doug Wilson.”
