Hockey Diversity Alliance (HDA) makes statement regarding Evander Kane allegations

The Hockey Diversity Alliance released a statement on Tuesday regarding board member Evander Kane, who is currently under investigation for gambling on NHL games.

Evander Kane is one of the founding members of the HDA, which was formed in 2020 “to eradicate racism and intolerance in hockey.” He also serves as one of the co-heads of the committee alongside former NHLer Akim Aliu, who made headlines in 2019 for sharing his story of a past hazing incident involving then-Calgary Flames coach Bill Peters. (Peters resigned due to the allegations.)

The HDA executive committee also includes active players Matt Dumba, Wayne Simmonds and Trevor Daley, as well as former NHLers Joel Ward and Chris Stewart.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
