Most of the NHL players are from Canada or Europe, yet I don't think any has ever come out in NHL history very surprising. Given the fact Canada is the most progressive nation in the western hemisphere shocking that a Canadian NHL player has not come out as gay.
There are rumours about about a few French Canadian players but those are just rumours. So far in pro sports men have come out after their careers ended in the NBA, NFL, and MLB but never the NHL.
The NHL has all these progressive programs like You Can Play and all that stuff. Yet nobody has come out very weird and strange. I thought the NHL was progressive.
