The NHL Players Association said Monday that players in the league have been using social media to “exploit” their positions of power.
In a statement released Monday, the league said that players “have been exploiting their positions as executive directors of NHL teams to engage in a pattern of misconduct.”
The players’ union said the players have been “using social media and other means to exploit their positions.”
The NHLPA has previously said that it is investigating allegations that players have used social media, video games, and other forms of communication to “engage in a culture of intimidation and harassment” and that players were aware of the behavior.
Last week, the NHL said it had begun an investigation into “a number of alleged misconducts committed by some members of our professional hockey community that are in violation of our code of conduct, and that we are taking appropriate actions.”
