Nash said the comparatively lengthy recovery process attached to what was his second concussion in eight months has altered his perspective.
“I’ve come to realize that with all this stuff going on, I’m going to have more than half of my life to live after I retire,” said the 29-year-old. “There’s a lot to life after hockey.
“Headshots are a serious problem in the game. You see them all the time,” said Nash, whose team will play in Dallas on Thursday to open a five-game trip including stops in Nashville, Tampa Bay, Florida and Boston. “You watch the highlights and it seems like there’s a headshot every night.
“Something has to change.”
(Brad) Stuart was suspended for three games for the blow in question. Nash does not question that. He doesn’t assign the burden of affecting change to VP Brendan Shanahan, the Department of Player Safety or the NHL. The burden, he believes, is on the players to change their behavior.
