The NHL better step in and do something. Just because these players go out and fight every night does not mean that they are invincible. It is a very stressful role to play these days. As seen by the comments made by George Laraque,Tyson Nash,Cody Franson etc.
My condolences go out to all of his family and friends.
Now onto some better hockey news. The Blades kicked off their pre season on Wednesday night with a tilt in Prince Albert against the Raiders. Saskatoon managed to score 1st. That was all that they could really do.
Here is a recap from the Blades website: http://www.saskatoonblades.com/article/saskatoon-drops-exhibition-opener
I am excited for Saturday. Also to see the rookies and players looking to earn a spot on the Blades roster or even just trying to get listed/protected by the Blades. Hockey is Back!!!!
