Some professional hockey players have called for the Stanley Cup Playoffs to be halted in solidarity with Black Lives Matter protests.

In a tweet Thursday afternoon, player Evander Kane tweeted today that players with the league’s Hockey Diversity Alliance “have formally requested the @NHL to suspend all playoff games today.”

Yesterday, Kane tweeted, “Actually it’s incredibly insulting as a black man in hockey the lack of action and acknowledgment from the @nhl, just straight-up insulting.”
