“Having played in this league a long time…when I was a rookie, I was tripped into a net in Hartford by the great Gordie Howe, and injured and carried off the ice. He came in between periods all the way around the rink to make sure I was OK. So, my response to the lack of, maybe, concern towards our player, is disappointing.”
“It’s the game of hockey. You play a playoff series, you play hard, guys battle, they fight, people get dinged up. At the end of the series, what do people do? They shake hands. As I said, all I know is Gordie Howe, one of the toughest, most physical guys that ever played, found time to come in and check on me. It’s a part of the game that I think makes our game the game that it is.”
-Doug Wilson, GM of the San Jose Sharks. Wilson was disappointed Dustin Brown of the LA Kings did not 'check-in' on Tomsa Hertl after his hit on him last week. More from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.
