A class-action lawsuit filed in a Washington DC court against the NHL listing 10 plaintiffs has grown exponentially in a matter of days and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.

The suit, which claims the NHL was negligent in protecting players from concussions and withheld some information about the dangers of concussions, promised to be a big deal that would only get bigger. It was a long time coming, especially after a similar suit in the NFL resulted in a settlement between the thousands of former players and the league.

Now according to former NFL linebacker-turned injury lawyer Mel Owens says that the list of plaintiffs on the class-action suit has grown to more than 200 and is only on the rise.
