The NHL has decided to make a statement with it's return to play.
The league along with lots of players are taking a stand for social justice and racial equality.
Last night was highlighted by Vegas Golden Knights forward Ryan Reaves being joined by teammate Robin Lehner and Dallas Stars' forwards Tyler Seguin and Jason Dickinson in taking a knee during the Star Spangled Banner.
While some want to see more players take a knee across all sports, some are tired of it and have even stopped watching sports all together.
President Trump took to Twitter this morning to call out players who are doing it.
"People are not happy that players are not standing for our National Anthem!"
Does this bother you or do you just want to see some hockey?
People are not happy that players are not standing for our National Anthem!
