J.T. Brown is the first NHL player to make a statement during "The Star-Spangled Banner" this season.

The Tampa Bay Lightning forward raised his fist while standing for the U.S. national anthem Saturday night before playing the Florida Panthers.

Brown joins a growing list of athletes across several sports to protest police brutality and racial injustice, a movement initially led by quarterback Colin Kaepernick that drew incendiary comments from U.S. President Donald Trump.
