The plaintiffs in the case are seeking to represent current and former NHL players in the latest of series of lawsuits tied to physical injuries suffered by professional football and hockey players. $914 million in compensation to more than 5,000 former players for ailments stemming from head injuries, testing and educational programs.

The lawsuit plaintiffs in the lawsuit are Dan LaCouture, a former player for the Edmonton Oilers, who suffered a concussion; Dan Keczmer, from the Dallas Stars and the Nashville Predator; and Jack Carlson, a forward who played for the St. Louis Blues and the Minnesota North Stars.

Another lawsuit against the hockey league was filed in Federal Court in Washington in November. “We are completely satisfied with our record on player safety, including as it relates to head injuries and brain trauma,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said today in a statement. “We do not believe the new complaint provides any valid basis for liability or damages as against the National Hockey League and we intend to defend the case and others that may follow it vigorously.”
