MINNEAPOLIS, Minn (AP) – Another group of former NHL players has filed a federal class action lawsuit alleging that the league has downplayed the risk of head injuries, while at the same time promoting fighting and violence in the game.

The lawsuit was filed in Minneapolis on Tuesday. Retired players Dave Christian, Reed Larson and William Bennett are the named plaintiffs leading the suit. It alleges that the NHL put its players “at a substantially higher risk” for developing memory loss, depression, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

The lawsuit, which is similar to one brought by former football players against the NFL, joins others filed by hockey players in Washington and New York and seeks monetary damages and increased medical monitoring.
