After destroying a Predators fan's phone on Monday as he walked off the ice, J.T. Brown is making it "right" by him.

"We've reached out to the guy, and we're working on getting him a new phone as well. That's all there really is to say," Brown said. The phone Brown destroyed was an iPhone, by the way. "At the end of the day, we made it right," and it will come with a signed jersey to boot.

J.T. Brown responded to Team USA coach John Tortorella's comment that he would bench any player who didn't stand for the national anthem.

"Wouldn't benching a black man for taking a stance only further prove Kap's point of oppression? But hey," Brown tweeted on Tuesday. He went further into depth on Thursday when he said: "I'd like to make it clear that I have no ill will towards John Tortorella. I do not know him. I responded to a story on Twitter with my opinion and that was how I saw it. He sees the situation through his reality and I see it through mine, as a black athlete in the NHL. I know I'm not on the United States World Cup roster, but I have had a chance to represent my country on other occasions. My Tweet was a hypothetical. What if I took a stance to promote awareness for one of the many injustices still occurring in our country and was punished despite there being no rule or law against it?" He added that what is happening in the United States hasn't gone unnoticed by the hockey community and he will look for opportunities to help bring awareness to racial issues.
