    It only takes a fraction of a second to move your head up or down. What if Leddy had his head up the whole time, and only dropped it right after the shot when the UAA player was about to make contact? I don't think you can make the hitter responsible for something the person receiving the hit can change in a split second, which is why the responsibility ultimately lies on all players to always keep their heads up.
    Injury is a possability on any hit. But it is a higher possibility with a hit to the head, thus the emphasis on such hits, as with CFB.

    And WHAT IF Leddy had done a triple Lutz first? I don't know if that would have been a penalty. But in this case, Leddy didn't drop his head before the hit so your "what if" doesn't matter. It was down before the hit began and stayed down from what I recall. That is hitting a person in a vulnerable position. In the case where a person were to move his head into a check being thrown, than it shouldn't be a penalty because the player being hit wasn't in the vulnerable position at the beginning of the hit. You don't protect players by having a rule that states, because a person can move their head quickly into an elbow, hits to the head should be allowed!

      New goalie recruit. Adam Wilcox from South Saint Paul. The word is it's Alex Stalock's cousin.

        If he is Stalock's cousin, the Gopher students need to chant "Wilcox! Wilcox!" every time he touches the puck or comes within five feet of considering touching the puck.

          Stalock's cousin?

            This is after Reichmuth stopped the puck behind the net on a dump in while the opposing team changed lines.

                JFC. He just said that it didn't warrant a suspension. It is right in the post you quoted!

                  Obviously not college hockey related, but just following up on the video of that unbelievably brutal hit that I posted today that occurred on Sat. Oct 31, just one day after Leddy's hit, during an OHL game between the Erie Otters VS Kitchener Rangers. Ben Fanelli was left with basically the same thing Tom Pohl had, a fractured skull, lacerations on the face and he remains in critical condition. Mike Liambas is suspended indefinitely by the OHL until further review of the video. Awesome skull at the end. Kind of appropriate...

                    3 players that are MIA (no points yet) this season:

                    Carman
                    Hansen
                    Sachetti

                    Sachetti and Hansen were voted in my little survey as the two players most likely to step up and fill the void. Doesn't help that 3 of the 6 games the Gophers were held scoreless, but still, time to get moving.

                      Carman has been pretty good at getting his name on the game reports regardless, though.

                        I was one that thought Sachetti would have a breakout year and he still could the season is still early. Though zero points through 6 games is not the best way to start.

                          According to a Tweet just posted by Hammy there *could* be really bad news regarding an injury to Bariball from today's practice. Hammy mentions the dreaded words "season ending" is possible. Erf.
