• Ryan Getzlaf on changing workplace culture: “It’s not just hockey. It’s the sports world, in general. The culture has been here for a long time, and the way of the world, in general.

I think it’s important that we protect people and protect each other, and the sports world is no different. We make mistakes, but we also learn from things and, hopefully, the whole sports world can get together and nail this thing down to be better people in the end.” [OC Register]
