You likely have seen, by now, this clip showing how vicious hockey thuggery has become. It happened on the weekend in the Quebec Juniors, and it is very, very disturbing.
It is also becoming way, way too commonplace. As a proud hockey Dad – who spends many hours in hockey rinks every weekend, and on many weeknights, too – I have seen far too much of this crap. It’s happening more often, it seems.
Enough is enough. It is imperative that the likes of Don Cherry and others condemn, unambiguously, this kind of hockey violence. Because, if it was happening off-ice, we’d be calling it something else.
We’d be calling it a crime.
