The entire sports world is rallying behind Damar Hamlin, safety for the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, who suffered cardiac arrest following a hit in Monday’s game versus the Cincinnati Bengals. Ahead of their tilt against the Washington Capitals at Capital One Arena, the Buffalo Sabres honored Hamlin with special shirts.

As they headed towards the locker room, players donned “Love For 3” shirts, Hamlin’s number with the Bills.

The Sabres showed their love and support for the 24-year-old “Bills Mafia” player, who was transferred to the UC Medical Center, where he spent the night in the intensive care unit and remains in critical condition.

As mentioned, players, coaches, and fans from all over poured in messages of support. All 32 NFL teams changed their profile pictures on Twitter to “Pray for Damar”:

A moment of silence will be held before tonight’s Capitals/Sabres game.

NoVa Caps would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to Damar and Buffalo. We are with you!

    I don’t mind showing a support for the player in question,but you give “moments of silence “ when someone pass’s away! I would rather see crowd chant of players name or come back soon!
    Also remember Chris Pronger had cardiac event during game & continued a HOF career!
    I’ll cheer this players comeback but I won’t be silent!
