The Locked On Sharks guys ask: Is Mario Ferraro the best defensive defenseman on the Sharks?

Around the NHL…
The Hockey Diversity Alliance was formed one year ago:
One year ago today, NHL players of colour formed the Hockey Diversity Alliance.
One year later, we’re proud of our accomplishments. And we're as resolved as ever to end the racism and intolerance that we – and countless others – have faced throughout our lives and careers.
