Hockey Sticks are for Scoring goals NOT this!

disgrace to hockey, hockey stick hit to head

by Jeremy Rupke on April 6, 2011

Hey, this is sort of an impulse post but after watching this video I am really disgusted and feel I need to share this with other hockey players. In this video a hockey player attacks another hockey player with his stick. Let me get one thing straight THAT IS NOT HOCKEY. A hockey stick should NEVER be used to hurt another player. If you EVER think about hitting another player with your stick PLEASE just drop the stick on the ice so you won’t be tempted. What would happen if you killed another player, or severely injured them? It could happen and it’s just not worth it, so please just vow never to hit another player with your stick. Sticks are for making passes, scoring goals, and riding on after your score ;)

The same thing happened in ice hockey this season to a kid on my team. He got a concussion from it :/

My son was attacked by another player who started hitting him across the neck with his stick saying he was going to break my sons’ neck. The player received a game ejection but was allowed to stay in the building because his dad is a big shot at the rink.

Why would anyone do or think of doing something like that?

I’ve seen this happen before, I play roller hockey in the uk and was at a tournament last year, a player from an American team got tripped and his helmet came of his head, he was angry so from the ground swung his stick and hit the player that tripped him in the legs, I doubt this hurt too much but that’s not the point. I thought that was the end of it but it wasn’t, the player that tripped the American guy swung at the American with his stick and just missed his head, then took another swing. This one hit the guy on the top of the head, with the end of the blade, like an axe.
Absolutely shocking.
I am glad to say the player that done it got a lifetime ban and arrested.
