A video of a player being taken to a hospital after being bitten by a spider shows that it happened a lot more recently than the NHL would have you believe.
The video, posted on the NHL website on Saturday, shows a player taking a hit to the head after being knocked to the ground.
The player, wearing a mask and a protective mask, is seen lying on the ground with his head bent back in pain.
“The video shows the player lying in the street and the video then shows him coming to a stop and his face being covered by a protective helmet,” the NHL said in a statement.
“After being hit by a venomous spider, the player then starts to fall and the venomous web begins to bite into his face.”
The player then lies on the pavement for about 10 seconds before the video cuts to a different angle.
The NHL did not respond to questions from The Associated Press about the timing of the video and whether it was taken before the NHL Players’ Association filed a lawsuit against the league in April.
The players union filed the lawsuit to challenge the league’s handling of the spider bite.
“We believe the video shows a medical emergency, as there was no clear indication the player was in pain or seriously injured,” the union said in its lawsuit.
The league said it had no comment.
The concussion and blood clot issues were a concern in the lawsuit and were one reason why the players union was seeking damages, according to the lawsuit.
A league source said the league did not comment on the details of a lawsuit until the lawsuit was filed.
The lawsuit comes after the league suspended four players for the first two games of the season.
The first suspension was for a fight during a game against the Montreal Canadiens on April 17, while the second suspension was issued for an incident involving a fan at the start of a game on April 21.
The fans’ group was protesting a goal being called back by the Canadiens after a collision with a Montreal player, and they were also protesting a hit by Montreal goalie Carey Price on Ottawa’s David Legwand.
Price was suspended for a game for striking Legwis hand during a fight on March 22.
The suspension came after Legwands concussion led to him being hospitalized and suffering a concussion.
The team’s medical staff, however, said that Legwanders condition was not a concern and that the fan was not involved in the fight.
The incident was one of several incidents that led to players getting suspended.
The three suspensions have been met with anger by players and fans.
The most recent was a fight between Edmonton Oilers defenseman Erik Karlsson and Ottawa Senators forward Alexander Steen on March 25.
Steen was not suspended and Karlsson was fined $7,875 by the league for his part in the brawl.
“It’s unfortunate that a player is getting suspended because he got involved in a fight with a fan,” said Senators general manager Bryan Murray, who is also a member of the NHLPA.
“You never want to see anything like that, especially when you’re a young player, but the league does everything it can to make sure there are no repeat offenders.
The union doesn’t take a position on things like that.”
The league has had some struggles in recent seasons with players getting into fights and being fined.
Players were suspended in March for hitting a New York Rangers player during a scrum in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, and the league was fined by the NHL for a series of unsportsmanlike conduct incidents.
The League Players Association, meanwhile, has been under fire in recent years for its handling of concussion issues, including the suspensions of several players and the suspension of players who are not taking the league seriously for taking action to improve the safety of players.
