from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,
The number of former NHL players involved a class-action concussion lawsuit against the league is growing at a rapid rate. Within 48 hours of the suit being filed in a Washington federal court, the original group of 10 plaintiffs had inflated to more than 200, according to one of the lawyers working on the case.
Steven Silverman told Sportsnet on Wednesday afternoon that he expected the total to climb even further by the end of the day.
That revelation came a few hours after Mel Owens, another lawyer representing the players, told Sportsnet in a separate interview that some big names might eventually join in. He also pointed out that the relatively low profile of the 10 initial players named as plaintiffs shouldn’t in any way diminish its importance.
If Mel Owens rings a bell, former Michigan football player and played in the NFL with the LA Rams.
