The original concussion lawsuit against the NHL included 10 former players, and that number has already grown.

Owens, an NFL linebacker-turned-disability lawyer said in a phone interview Wednesday that “hundreds” of ex-NHL players are going to become part of the suit, which was filed in U.S. federal court in Washington on Monday.

“These are 10 players, but there’s hundreds of guys that, they’re in the lawsuit,” said Owens, who works for NBO Law in Beverly Hills, Calif. “They just haven’t been named yet. They’re going to be there.”
