The NHL must lead the way in hockey's drive to become more diverse and inclusive, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Wednesday on NBC Sports' "Hockey Culture."

"If we're going to make a difference through all levels of our game, we have to be setting the example at the NHL and club level," Commissioner Bettman told "NHL on NBC" analyst Anson Carter, host of the show dedicated to bringing more equality and inclusion to hockey.
