Over the past year and a half, the NHL has been grappling with a growing trend of social discussions and causes being displayed throughout the league.

It began when Ivan Provorov, the former Flyers defenseman, decided not to wear pride colours on a jersey during warm-up last year. He felt that this went against his beliefs and his church.
Many other players expressed their own opinions on this discussion, leading the NHL to decide to ban all pride colours from being displayed in the league for this season.
It appears that the league has also decided to ban certain symbols for worthy causes from goaltenders' equipment. Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Logan Thompson wanted to design a breast cancer ribbon into his helmet.
Per sources, #VegasBorn goalie Logan Thompson wanted to put a Cancer ribbon on his helmet design but was told he couldn't by the NHL. It is Hockey Fights Cancer Month in the NHL. Thompson is the backup goalie tonight against the #SJSharks


The NHL decided against it, and it certainly has caused ripple effects across social media platforms and the general public. These kinds of stories will continue to pop up from time to time as the NHL learns to adapt to its fan base and will need to accept that a conversation will need to be had about a potential change in their way of thinking.
