Tough to know what to make of this one. MacDermid may have caught Highmore up high but Highmore was reaching for the puck. Didn't look like MacDermid elevated at all. #Canucks pic.twitter.com/T1J8L9Xk92

Totally missed this in the scramble to do Armies, but @mbassi22 is right, Logan O'Connor ran through Podkolzin's head and extends his elbow. Refs had zero interest in calling anything against the Avalanche tonight.
Refs would call Podkolzin for interference a few seconds later. pic.twitter.com/aRs5Sdc22U

A young NHL player was diagnosed with a concussion, suffered symptoms for 19 days. His 1st game back, he’s hit in the head, leaves the game and is allowed to return?? When he gets home that night, his mother says she immediately knew he didn’t look right. https://t.co/gC9u9smU1A

“Many retired players in hockey are suffering from serious neurological issues that impair their day-to-day quality of life on a spectrum where players are dealing with severe depression, memory loss, anger and anxiety issues, seizures — to the point where they cannot keep a job.I had a former client who I represented for years call me last year, and he said, “Allan, I need some help. I was driving home from the supermarket — I live two miles from the supermarket and I got lost and couldn’t find my way home. I called my wife in tears, ‘Help me come home. What street do I turn on?’ I’ve been doing this drive for 10 years and I can’t get home anymore.”That’s the kind of stuff that is going on, and that’s what people need to know and understand. When Gary Bettman wants to challenge the medical consensus out there now and say the study of CTE and concussion is still in a nascent state, he’s wrong. The medical consensus out there now amongst all serious medical researchers, neurologists and doctors — peer-review studies — is that subconcussive blows to the head have a causation factor with the future development, potential development of CTE. There’s a lot we don’t know. We do know this: CTE does not exist except in the brains of athletes or people who had concussions. It’s not something found in the general population amongst people who have never had a blow to the head.”
