Ray sues players’ union for post-lockout payout

Via: Buffalo News

‘The suit involves a case Ray brought against the union in December 2004. During the lockout, the NHLPA was paying its players a stipend of up to $10,000 a month. The money came from a fund the union collected in anticipation of the work stoppage. Ray did not receive payments because the union considered him retired, but he sued saying he wasn’t. The case was settled for $70,000. After the lockout, the union delivered another payment to players, this time in the amount of $150,000, according to the Star. Again, Ray did not get a check. That is the money the Sabres’ television analyst is seeking.’
