Today we’re taking a break from showing you men with their cocks out to talk about a sweet moment within the world of sport. One year after NHL player Luke Prokop came out, his teammates are weighing in on how things have changed…
“Luke inspired a lot of guys on the team,” forward Josh Williams said. “Seeing how vulnerable he was at the start to seeing him be his true self. To see him do that, it’s super brave. In the room, we treated him like any other player: He’s part of our family, he’s one of our brothers.”
While forward Jalen Luypen shared the sentiment: “We changed our mentality as a group and protected Luke at all costs.
“We just kind of fell in love with him. He’s just a great dude. … We knew if anything was said to Luke, we’d do anything for him.”
Prokop himself seems to have bypassed any negativity, saying: “It’s been a whirlwind. It seems like it was a long time ago, but it’s been nothing but a positive experience for me. It’s been really amazing the way my teammates have been with me, even opponents. Some would come up to me during warmup and congratulate me.”
He added that this past season was “by far the most fun year of hockey I’ve ever had.”
“I think my confidence just kind of went through the roof after my coming out,” he said, “and it’s been really great to see my performance on the ice grow in a positive direction and be a lot more consistent than it had been in the past.”
