Not too long ago, the NHL launched the You Can Play project, helping to support the fight against homophobia.
More recently, Robin Perelle fromXtra caught up with two of the Vancouver Canucks to talk more about their thoughts on the campaign and how friendly the Canucks locker room would be if a player were to come out of the closet. Henrik Sedin said he was totally okay with it, as is his brother and many of the other players he’s talked to. Ryan Kesler also said he’d be okay with it as well and that the team is one big family.
Both men reiterated the message, “If you can play, you can play.” Love it. Kudos to these hockey players for speaking out and to Xtra for venturing out to interview them!
