Matt Dumba made a fabulous speech before the Edmonton-Chicago game on racial injustice.

The talented defenseman stated: “For those unaffected by systematic racism, or unaware, I’m sure that some of you believe that this topic has garnered too much attention during the last couple months. But let me assure you, it has not,” said Dumba. “Racism is a manmade creation, and all it does is deteriorate from our collective prosperity. Racism is everywhere. Racism is everywhere, and we need to fight against it. On behalf of the NHL and the Hockey Diversity Alliance, we vow and promise to stand up for justice and fight for what is right. I know firsthand as a minority playing the great game of hockey the unexplainable and difficult challenges that come with it. The Hockey Diversity Alliance and the NHL want kids to feel safe, comfortable and free-minded every time they enter an arena. I stand in front of you today on behalf of those groups and promise you that we will fight against injustice and fight for what is right. I hope this inspires a new generation of hockey players and hockey fans, because Black Lives Matter. Breonna Taylor’s life matters. Hockey is a great game, but it could be a whole lot greater. And it starts with all of us.” Dumba then took a knee for the United States national anthem where the Blackhawks Malcolm Subban and the Oilers Darnell Nurse stood beside him with their hand on his shoulder. Well done Matt! Aug 02 9:08 am (EST)
