Suspension Incoming After Dirty Hit To The Head

Published September 24, 2023 at 9:38 PM

With the preseason in full swing, teams are evaluating their rosters, and players are eager to make their mark in hopes of securing an NHL spot. However, with this intensity, there can also be some dangerous collisions.

In a game between the Minnesota Wild and the Colorado Avalanche, a particularly unsettling incident occurred. Midway through the second period, Wild defenseman Daemon Hunt found himself in a tough spot behind his own net as Avalanche forward Tanner Kero approached. Kero's elbow connected with Hunt in a high hit that left the young defender bloodied and disoriented. This reckless hit, which targeted Hunt's head, raises questions about potential suspension-worthy actions on the ice.

Hits like this have no place in the game. While injuries can happen in hockey, there's no justification for such dangerous plays, especially those that involve unsuspecting players.
