Hockey Sticks are for Scoring goals NOT this!

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 😉

Disgrace to Hockey

    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.

    What a discusting act of a coward! For LIFE is what the punishment should be. Playing full contact with him would be short and sweet.

  8. Reply Tim April 7, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    Wow. That guy should get beat down. Stuff like this is why the NHL should’ve suspended Chris Simon for life.

    That Kid should never be allowed to play hockey ever again, he should be barred from the sport

  10. Reply Samantha April 7, 2011 at 7:32 am

    Oh my goodness! He broke the stick right over that guy’s helmet!! I am so glad the guy was OK!!

    Let’s hope he got suspended and sent to some kind of anger management or therapy. After all, unless he is a sociopath, which few people really are, he probably feels terrible that he lost such control and also very very embarrassed that this is getting so much attention.

    And that can be a very good thing if it sparks him to get help.

    These are all just kids, after all, so I am hoping they will ALL turn out to be excellent young men and fine players.

    Damn, good thing the stick caught him in the shoulder pad, this is just stupid behaviour. I’m not even a fan of throwing punches, this just made me gag…

  12. Reply John April 6, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    I think everybody else said it all…what a disgrace to a great sport. That is assault with a weapon and he should be charged for it.

  13. Reply Robert April 6, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    I vow to NEVER do that.

  14. Reply Jeremy April 6, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    Those refs are idiots for breaking it up (imo)… if I were reffing that game I would have let the other team have at him!

  15. Reply Lil le magnifique April 6, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    I understand the place of fighting in hockey, but to use your stick like that is just wrong. A real fighter will drop his gloves and stick, and if he’s wearing a full cage take his helmet off too. The guy that did this is a disgrace to the game.

  16. Reply Greg April 6, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    Yea, sometimes I see people in rec/bush leagues thinking every game is the 7th game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and get carried away. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with being competitive and showing passion, but this is just plain disgusting. Chill out bro.

  17. Reply Jeffizzle April 6, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Holy moly… he shouldn’t be allowed to play ever again.

  18. Reply Cassius April 6, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    As it was said before– how awful! As a player and a referee, I would have went after the violator like nobody’s business. Not to escalate the fight but to get him off the ice… for good!

    How fortunate that the victim was wearing a helmet and didn’t get severely hurt! Nevertheless, it doesn’t make this act okay. Imagine baseball players doing the same thing–uff– it’s brutal whether protective gear is used or not!

  19. Reply Ray April 6, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    He should be banned for life and the team he plays for looks like they all have different sweaters. I wonder if this idiot was a guest player. If that is the case then the whole team should be punished, sorry but this could have ended very badly and tragically with a fatality.

  20. Reply Neil April 6, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    Not only disguting but completely cowardly…. Players like this completely disrespect the game of hockey… He should be banned from hockey…. That play was a disgrace

    Glad to see the player was ok.

  21. Reply Sana April 6, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    Oh my god! I can’t believe a kid would do that. he should be suspended from the season. That is not the way a stick should be treated.

    Wow, that was just disgusting.

  22. Reply Caelan April 6, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    i cant believe that he even got up after getting hit with that stick!!!!

  23. Reply Justin April 6, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    That is disgusting. When playing hockey, there’s always that moral respect and code you should follow. One of those is never to use your stick to hurt! That guy needs to be punished!

  24. Reply Ryan April 6, 2011 at 2:28 pm

    That was just disgusting. Good thing the player who got hit appears to be OK.
    What the rec league players need to do is press charges on incidents like this.
    Rec leagues have little power but to issue suspensions, which really doesn’t punish idiots like this.

  25. Reply Chris S April 6, 2011 at 2:25 pm

    I can’t believe any of his teammates even tried to protect him after that!!! I would have let everyone on the ice take a shot. No place in hockey for that kind of stupidity.I agree with the above comment banned from every rink (ice or roller) for life.

  26. Reply Coach MikeV April 6, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    Idiots like this should not be allowed to enter any rink. This is why hockey is not as popular as it should be.

    I was very happy to see the other player get back up and was equally happy to see the other team go after him.
