...Footage of the brawl posted online showed many in the team pushing and shoving, and two of the tikes throwing punches like typical NHL enforcers (a.k.a. goons)—which is exactly the problem, says Dr. Gordon Bloom an expert in sports psychology at McGill University.
Professional hockey players set a violent example that younger players try to emulate, says Bloom. “What happens in the pros trickles down.”
Bloom has seen a dramatic change in youth hockey over the last thirty years and says players don’t respect each other the way they used to.
