*i did a bunch of math*
Statistically, out of the approximately 692 current NHL players, 20 are LGBTQ. Unless hockey players are some sort of statistical anomaly-which i doubt, as there are openly gay professional women hockey players.
It is perfectly acceptable to not assume all NHL players are heterosexual. People need to get over that some of them may like guys (gasp) and some of them may like guys and girls (GASP). As fans we need to remember that it is partially our job to make the hockey environment one that people can feel safe in.
