KSTP's Investigative Team sat down with Reed Larson, a former NHL player, as part of the "Fighting Back" series.
Larson says he was told "nothing" about the risks associated with concussions during the 17 seasons he played in the NHL.
The former Minnesota Gopher and North Star says he joined the lawsuit because players need to be medically monitored for long-term health effects like CTE.
"People want to point us out at as troublemakers or looking for a pot of gold," Larson said. "This is a serious issue and it's rampant."
