Shocking NHL Decision On Golden Knights' Logan Thompson Sparks Outrage

The NHL has come under scrutiny for its perceived inconsistency in regulating player expressions and equipment decorations.

One recent incident involving Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Logan Thompson highlights this issue.

Thompson was reportedly denied permission to feature a cancer ribbon on his helmet during Hockey Fights Cancer Month, despite the NHL's historical support for initiatives like Hockey Fights Cancer and the recent reversal of the ban on pride tape.

This decision has sparked controversy and calls for the league to reconsider.

Sergei Bobrovsky, the Florida Panthers' goaltender, also joined the conversation by creating an all-purple mask for the same awareness month.

However, it remains unclear whether any fines or penalties were imposed on him for this action.

The situation has left many wondering whether public pressure will prompt a reversal, similar to what occurred with pride tape.
