The NHL started celebrating Pride Nights to raise the visibility and acceptance of LGBTQ+ people and every NHL team hosted the event in the past.

In the last season, many of those plans were canceled by the NHL teams after being made public.

Some of the other NHL players including the Flyers player Ivan Provorov opted out of participating in warmups with his teammates for the Pride Night event last season.

Furthermore, the Chicago Blackhawks, Minnesota Wild, and the New York Rangers opted not to wear Pride jerseys during warmups.

After the refusal of these players and teams to wear Pride jerseys, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said that he has advised NHL franchises to stop wearing specialty-themed jerseys.

This decision of the NHL to ban the Pride-themed jerseys during the games was criticized by many. 

It was decided to halt the Pride Night events beginning the 2023-24 season. Interestingly, it is back on the schedule of the NHL franchises.

Usually, the players wear specially designed jerseys during warmups to celebrate the event. The jerseys are then auctioned off after the game.
