Another NHL Lawsuit And Mike Bossy Gets His Puck

Not one but two hockey related emails from TMZ (no I did not sign-up for them, they just send them to me knowing I am a hockey guy)...

A former professional hockey player is suing the NHL -- claiming he was seriously jacked up from several fights during his career ... and blames the league for failing to look out for his health.

The man behind the lawsuit is Cam Severson -- who was drafted by the San Jose Sharks in 1997.

In his suit, Severson says he was involved in at least 10 fights during his career ... and specifically calls out an instance during the '03-'04 season where he was so badly disoriented, he skated to the wrong bench afterward and sat down with the wrong team....

Severson says the league glorifies dangerous bare knuckle fist fighting ... and cares about fighting even more than the actual game.

NHL God Mike Bossy just got a HUGE assist from a famous rich guy -- Gavin Maloof -- who shelled out a fortune to reunite Mike with a legendary hockey puck ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We broke the story, Bossy lost his famous "50 in 50 puck" -- which he used to score his 50th goal in 50 games back in '81 -- 30 years ago, after his daughter mistakenly gave it away. 

The guy who ended up with the puck put it up on eBay back in May -- and when Maloof caught wind of the sale, he tells us he felt compelled to take action to help Bossy get it back. 

"I said, 'We need to get this puck. It means a lot to Mr. Bossy,'" Maloof tells TMZ Sports.
