NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly released a league statement in reaction to the class-action lawsuit regarding concussions on Monday:

“We are aware of the class action lawsuit filed today in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of a group of former NHL Players. While the subject matter is very serious, we are completely satisfied with the responsible manner in which the League and the Players’ Association have managed Player safety over time, including with respect to head injuries and concussions. We intend to defend the case vigorously and have no further comment at this time.”

No doubt, this should be an interesting situation to follow. Stay tuned for more as this develops, whether that be later today or in the coming days, weeks, months or even years.
