In addition to Sidney Crosby, Braden Holtby, P.K. Subban, and Shea Weber, several other NHL players spoke out against racial injustice Wednesday.

Boston Bruins star Patrice Bergeron released his statement through the team's Twitter account, offering to educate himself while pledging to donate to two separate initiatives.

San Jose Sharks star defenseman Erik Karlsson also delivered a heartfelt message.

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux was another prominent player to release a statement on social media, vowing to stand up for what's right.

Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog also chimed in, saying we need to "learn how we got to this point, so we can do better."

Washington Capitals enforcer Tom Wilson announced he'll be making a donation to the oldest minority hockey program in the United States.

Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher also released a statement shortly before his captain did, condemning "bad police officers and ... the systems that allow them to continue to wear a badge," as well as looters who are "stealing the headlines."

Former NHL goaltender Ben Scrivens, who's currently working on his master's degree in social work, questioned why this many NHL players didn't speak out after the Bill Peters firing saga, K'Andre Miller's zoom call, or Akim Aliu's Players' Tribune article.

Dylan DeMelo of the Winnipeg Jets and Adam Henrique of the Anaheim Ducks also tweeted out statements of their own.
