This has been a pretty dark year for many people, but it’s also not been a bright ray of sunshine for the hockey world. Some of these happened in 2019, technically, but close enough to now that they fall within the last 12 months:
- This happened in November 2019, so not technically in 2020, but recent enough I wanted to include: that whole Don Cherry thing.
- Akim Aliu and his history of dealing with racism, namely from Bill Peters.
- Mike Babcock’s mind games with Mitch Marner.
- Brendan Leipsic essentially getting kicked out of the league when his toxic DMs on teammates and their significant others came out.
