By Chasta Piatakovas at Love the Game, Don't Like Puck Bunnies

The NHL launched green initiatives, and more than half the NHL players have taken major steps in becoming environmental leaders—Matt Bradley, the “Captain Planet” of the Washington Capitals, has instituted recycling programs—but increasingly more needs to be done as hockey causing considerable damage to the environment...
