National Hockey League, L.P. Key Developments

Zelle Hofmann Voelbel & Mason Files Concussion Class Action Suit Against National Hockey League

Zelle Hofmann Voelbel & Mason has filed a class action lawsuit against the National Hockey League (NHL) arising from the effects of brain injuries caused by concussive and sub-concussive impacts suffered by former NHL players. Jon Rohloff, who was a defenseman for the Boston Bruins from 1994-1997, is the Plaintiff and Class representative. Former NHL players are uniting to send one resounding message: they signed up to play hockey knowing that they might get injured and dinged, but they did not sign up for brain damage. Zelle Hofmann announced that over the course of an NHL season, a player sustains hundreds of hits to the head. These concussive and sub-concussive impacts, when multiplied over the course of an NHL career, result in impaired brain function or deadly brain disease. The lawsuit sets forth several allegations, including: The NHL, for decades, failed to inform, warn, or protect its players from repetitive mild traumatic brain injuries resulting from concussive and sub-concussive blows to the head; The NHL refused to institute policies and protocols to protect its players from concussive and sub-concussive injuries; Rather than inform its players regarding the risks of head injuries, the NHL openly encouraged severely injurious conduct such as fighting and extreme violence as a regular part of the game. In fact, the NHL did not simply allow fighting and violence, it promoted, regulated, and profited from it; and The NHL concealed scientific evidence about the health risks and consequences associated with head injuries received while playing in the NHL.

National Hockey League Announces Executive Changes

National Hockey League named Tim Murray as general manager. Murray replaces Darcy Regier, who along with coach Ron Rolston was fired in November after the Sabres lost 16 of their first 20 games. That's when Sabres owner Terry Pegula hired former NHL player Pat LaFontaine as president of hockey operations and he named Ted Nolan as interim coach of the Sabres.

Corboy & Demetrio Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against National Hockey League, L.P. in Death of Derek Boogaard

Corboy & Demetrio has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the National Hockey League, L.P. accusing it of negligently causing the death of Derek Boogaard by supplying him with excessive amounts of painkillers during his career as an 'Enforcer' and failing in its attempt to curb and cure his resulting addiction. Boogaard died of an accidental prescription drug overdose on May 13, 2011 in Minneapolis, after a battle with addiction to painkillers prescribed by a team of NHL doctors. A post-mortem examination revealed Boogaard suffered from CTE, a progressive brain disease caused by head trauma, according to the lawsuit. Boogaard was drafted in 2001 by the Minnesota Wild as an 'Enforcer', a player that engages in fist fights with players from the opposing team during games. He played for the New York Rangers at the time of his death. The lawsuit claims that the NHL knew or should have known that league players with brain damage are more susceptible to drug addiction, and specifically, that 'Enforcers/Fighters in the NHL had an increased risk of developing addiction to prescription medications'.
