The subject cried out for a little investigative work and the questions were simple. Is there too much swearing in hockey? Could anything be done about it?
“Of course, there is too much swearing,” conceded Vancouver Canucks defenceman Mattias Ohlund. “Hockey is an emotional game. You have 20 guys on each team and three or four coaches and they all want to win. Guys are jacked up and, at times, you get upset. It doesn’t matter if you play in Sweden, the NHL, the East Coast League or in a beer league, swearing is just part of the mentality of the game.”
But does it have to be so, uh, frequent? Children may be watching and listening.
