NHL Partners with You Can Play Project to Combat Homophobia

Preds captain Shea Weber has lent his voice to the You Can Play Project. - Jeff Gross


The New York Times reports that the NHL-YCP partnership intends to develop "what appears to be the most comprehensive measure by a major men's league in support of gay rights." The initiative will include training and counseling on gay issues.

Leading Predators have lent their voices to the You Can Play effort. Captain Shea Weber joined Habs Goalie Carey Price for an announcement last spring. The Predators' Brett Wilson became the first NHL owner to appear on behalf of You Can Play.
