In the last few minutes, there is a publication that is causing a huge stir on social media, and it comes from the very popular NHL Breakers media outlet, which quotes journalist Michael Russo.

"In a player interview conducted by Michael Russo (of The Athletic), which detailed what actually happens during NHL intermissions, players revealed that they still know "a fair amount" of their colleagues who smoke at every intermission.

Russo said that while it was much more common in the past, there are still several players who take smoking breaks between periods.

The players interviewed did not reveal who the smokers were."

Honestly, this sounds really hard to believe, but it's from a reliable source. See the publication in question:


Is this an issue that the National Hockey League needs to seriously address? Does it affect the older players in the league more?

You can guess that it raises many questions, but the only information we have is the one mentioned above.

Here is our hypothesis: there may have been some misunderstanding between the journalist and the players.

It's possible that some players still smoke cigarettes during intermissions, but by "there are still many players who take breaks to smoke between periods", were the players questioned talking about "vaping"?

We have no idea, but that would be our assumption. One thing is for sure, it makes people react.
