Former hockey starA Bryan BerardA has filed a lawsuit against theA NHLA for failing to protect him from brain injuries during his career, according toA TMZ Sports.

"The time has come for the NHL to not only care for those former players on whose backs and brains the League reaped billions of dollars, but also finally to put long-term player safety over profit," the lawsuit reads.

Berard reportedly has medical problems after dealing with "repetitive brain injuries" during his 12-year career in the league.

The 41-year-old spent time with six different organizations in the league after being the No. 1 overall pick in the 1995 draft. He won the Calder Trophy in 1996-97 and the Masterson Trophy in 2003-04.
