The president of the World Anti-Doping Agency says that he suspects as many as one third of the NHL's 700 players may take some form of performance enhancing drugs.
WOW. That's quite a substantial number. Does anyone think there is any truth to this?
The NHL introduced random tests for performance-enhancing drugs in its new collective bargaining agreement. Players are subject to a minimum of two tests a year without warning. A first-time offender gets a 20-game suspension, a second offense calls for a 60-game suspension, and a third offense results in a lifetime ban.
