Ice hockey pros left 'broken' by big hits

Former NHL player Dale Purinton is calling for the league to change their contact rules so players are not left "physically and mentally broken" at the end of their careers.

Purinton has joined forces with 125 former players who are suing the NHL because they feel the league didn't do enough to protect them.
