Hugues Lemee started this petition to National Hockey League and

To the attention of Mr. Gary Bettman and the Owners of the 32 National Hockey League teams.

In the history of the NHL, on several occasions we have witnessed hits to players during a game by an opposing player, often causing serious head injuries. These injuries often have harmful consequences on the health of the players, which can, moreover, leave after-effects for life.

With what science has taught us over the past few years, it is high time for NHL to take concrete action to eradicate this kind of behavior with the ultimate goal of protecting the health of its players. This is about a culture change within your organization. By avoiding taking action, it is understood that you are condoning this kind of behavior for no other purpose of increasing your profits at the expense of the health of your players.

The actions taken might look like this:

- The abolition of fights.

- Significant increase in the number of suspension matches when a player is injured following contact deemed intentional.

- Set up a rehabilitation program for players who have committed violent acts.

- Create a system of fines for teams whose players are guilty of violent acts.

- Avoid that certain players continue to play in your league, if this is necessary.

Only you have the power to change things.
