You know the NHL has been cracking down on hits to the head for three years now. If you still don’t know where the line is, if you still don’t think the penalties are consistent, if it all seems too nuanced and complicated, then make it simple:
Don’t put your fate in Shanahan’s hands.
Continue to play the physical hockey we love, but don’t try to obliterate your opponent. Stay low. Keep your skates on the ice. Keep your elbows in and shoulders down. Explode through the torso and separate the man from the puck.
And stay away from the freaking head.
Never mind not hurting your opponent. Don’t hurt yourself and your team.
