After an initial group of just 10 former players began a lawsuit against the NHL for concussion related injuries, lawyers representing them began to reach out to former players in order to grow their numbers, and it appears that they have succeeded.

The suit has now grown to more than 200 former players, according to a Wednesday report by Sportsnet's Chris Johnson reported. One representative, Steve Silverman, told Sportsnet that he expected that number to grow even more by as soon as the end of the day.

Not much more information is available yet, and no names have been given among the incredible number of new plaintiffs, but we will keep you up to date as soon as that changes.
