Rick Vaive Asks His Named Be Removed From NHL Concussion Lawsuit

from the CP at TSN,

 Former Toronto Maple Leafs captain Rick Vaive has asked that his name be removed from the concussion lawsuit against the NHL.

Vaive's lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasn't provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents.

"Mr. Vaive misunderstood the nature of the proceeding being brought, and believed this claim was similar to the worker's compensation claim being advanced in California on behalf of several former NHL players," Whiffen said in a statement Thursday.

"Rick has no interest in suing the National Hockey League and has advised that he will not be pursuing the claim in Washington. He has therefore instructed me to take the necessary steps required in order to remove his name from the lawsuit."

His “confusion” is probably proof he should still be named on the lawsuit.

And thus the lawsuit loses its only “name” player I have yet seen.
