Over the weekend, Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba became the first NHL player to kneel during the anthem while inside the NHL bubble and it seems like he’s inspired others in the league to do the same.

On Monday night, four other NHL players forward Ryan Reaves, goaltender Robin Lehner of the Vegas Golden Knights and forwards Tyler Seguin and Jason Dickinson of the Dallas Stars took a knee during the playing of the U.S. national anthem before the teams’ round-robin game in Edmonton, Alberta.

Before Dumba decided to kneel over the weekend NHL players had gone a week without kneeling during the anthem.

We’ll have to wait and see if more players come for and protest during the anthem in the upcoming days.
