Posted by seestyle on August 4th, 2022

Asked Tuesday morning following the Hurricanes' 5-0 win over the Capitals if fighting was nece sary in the Alex Verdugo Jersey NHL, Carolinahead coach Rod Brind'Amour ,Not really. Probably not.

Brind'Amour's comments came onthe heels of Capitals captain duringthe first period of Monday's Game 3.


Svechnikov, who was clipped on the chin andhithis head on the ice, appeared to be knocked unconscious briefly andwent to the hospital after the fight. He was placedin .

Lets forget about the semantics & weight/height differences & who asked who....Do we want to see NHL stars like Ovechkin & Svechnikov bare knuckle boxing?If the was conceived today, would it include fighting?Doubt it..

Interestingly, Brind'Amour the player was known to drop his gloves once or Carlton Fisk Jersey twice during his 20-year career. According to hockeyfights.com, the former Flyers, Hurricanes and Blues forward ama sed 27 fights. Not a huge number considering he played during the 'Era of the Enforcer'; however, enough for him to know the impact it can have on the game, and the players involved.

Considering the NHL has steadily seen a decline infighting acro s the league and the increase in the knowledge of what hits to the head can do to a player's long Steve Pearce Jersey -term health the question arises once again whether or not fighting should be banned from the NHL.

There is a divide among those who seeit still having a place in the game and those who feel the NHL has moved beyond the need. Players and GMs will argue it's a nece sary evil to police the game and maintain order. But how nece sary is it especially when a fight involves two of the game's most skilled players, like in this case.

Unsettling example of how a knockout punch in hockey can be lethal.It can cause two brain injuries, with the 2nd occurring on the unprotected fall - Carl Yastrzemski Jersey watch his head bounce off the ice.

Others will ascribe to thebarbaric nature of bare-knuckled fightingthat is now hitting the hard plastic of hockey helmets and the emerging information that consistent blows to the head lead to long-term Tony Conigliaro Jersey brain damage and potentially CTE.

Regardle s, the incident involving the young Hurricanes forward and the veteran Ovechkin is not the first time the NHL has seen a player get knocked out from a punch. The only question is, will it be the last?
