The National Hockey League might have gotten off easy with the majority of the class that took part in a concussion lawsuit settlement in 2018, but the estate of one former player is holding out for a potential day in court. After securing a preliminary victory in federal court when Judge John Z. Lee ruled the executor of the late Steve Montador’s estate, his father Paul Montador, can proceed with a claim against the NHL in the state of Illinois, the estate has done exactly that.
On Oct. 25, the Montador estate filed its complaint with the Circuit Court of Cook County, Ill. It demands a trial by jury and alleges four counts against the league and its Board of Governors.

The Montador Estate has filed its response to the NHL’s motion to dismiss its complaint, alleging the NHL had and failed a duty of care to Steve Montador while he was employed by NHL franchises. The case has already seen an interesting wrinkle, however.

There’s a saying, “When people show you who they are, believe them.” As people began to grapple with the realities of a pandemic and a world largely without sports, elite NBA/New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson announced that he’d cover the salaries of largely minimum wage venue workers while Gayle Benson, the owner of the Pelicans as well as the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, who is worth multiple billions compared to Zion’s single-digit millions remained silent. In contrast, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban almost immediately pledged to take care of the team’s hourly workers and began an initiative to provide daycare for the children of healthcare workers. He has also shown leadership in urging that people are not rushed back to work too quickly.
