Over the past year, many players in the NBA and NFL has stated how they would decline any invitation to the White House because of who is currently the commander in chief.

That’s not a shock to anyone as the majority of both sports are filled with African-American players. No one actually though it would be a problem for a sport like the NHL, but here we are…

Brett Connolly has absolutely no interest in going to the White House should the Washington Capitals be invited by President Donald Trump.

As for his teammates, several players, including Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, and Evgeny Kuznetsoz said they would attend if invited.
