Last night Marc-Andre Fleury made a decision that put him at war with Gary Bettman and the NHL.

Fleury Defies The NHL While Honoring His Wife



Last night Marc-Andre Fleury was front and center in the NHL news cycle. He decided to wear a helment celebrating Native American Heritage in honor of his wife. He did this despite being forbidden to by the NHL.

UPDATE: Rule be damned, Marc-Andre Fleury is wearing his Native American Heritage mask in warmups. I'm told it's very unlikely he or the #mnwild will be fined, but he's risking it


His mask is up to $5,600 in the auction—vastly more than any other item

Despite the certain fine that Fleury was facing from the NHL Fleury stuck to what is important to him. Since making this decision many people have come out and supported Fleury's decision including NHL legend Roberto Luongo.

Luongo Takes A Shot At The NHL In Support Of Fleury



Last night after the announcement was made that Fleury would be fined if he wore the mask NHL legend Roberto Luongo spoke out. He called out the NHL for their ridiculous application of rules.

I mean come on what are we even doing here??????


Luongo echoes the thoughts of many in the hockey community. Every other league allows and encourages players to support causes they believe in. The NHL tries to silence players from supporting causes and it is getting ridiculous.
