The NHL on Saturday arranged a private training session for former San Francisco quarterback Colin Capernick, who all 32 teams are welcome to attend.

The 32-year-old has not played since the 2016 season, when he started kneeling for the national anthem in protest of racial injustice in the United States.

Practicing in Atlanta will include fieldwork and interviewing.
