You are no doubt aware that three NHL teams have objected to Brandon Sugden returning to pro hockey this season. Brandon had planned on attending camp with the Islanders. It has not been revealed which teams blocked Brandon, but the denial means he can't sign a deal with an NHL component or play in the NHL until next season. Brandon needed to clear this odd technicality because after leaving the Crunch two seasons ago, he announced it as a "retirement.'' Because he "retired'' then came back to play pro hockey (in the LNAH) within one year, every other NHL organization had to give him a thumbs up to return. He could sign an AHL-only deal or return to the Quebec League, but that would push back the one-year sitting out period. It is not fair to mess with a man's lively hood....his dream. Sign your name to this petition to voice your opinion that Brandon Sugden should be allowed to play professional hockey again THIS season.

Tammie Vivlamore, United States7 years ago Comments: My mother died from cancer. I know how strong the desire is to make your parent happy and proud when you are in that situation. No one should take this from Brandon or his father.
