Minnesota’s Matt Dumba on Saturday became the first NHL player to kneel during the U.S. anthem, after he made a speech before a game between Edmonton and Chicago. He knelt at center ice while fellow Black players Malcolm Subban of Chicago and Darnell Nurse of Edmonton each stood with a hand on one of his shoulders.
Dumba's Wild faced Vancouver the following night, and he raised his right fist in the air during the U.S. and Canadian anthems. Several teams have stood together during the U.S. and Canadian anthems, with some players locking arms to show solidarity.
