from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,

“The young fella probably lost his season because of it and who knows beyond that,” Oilers coach Tom Renney said.

Nystrom was given a boarding major and a game misconduct, and the NHL will review the incident to see if he deserves further discipline. But Nystrom felt he had a legitimate race for the puck and felt absolutely awful after, saying, “Obviously, I had no intention of ever, ever doing anything like that. I was just racing for an icing and that’s just one of those freak things that happens in those situations. That’s why people always talk about that rule.”

The NHL is the only league that I know of in the world that has touch icing, and I got an unsolicited text from Foster (now with Anaheim) tonight saying he hopes this leads to change in the NHL. He plans to reach out to NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr very soon.

I honestly don’t know why the PA doesn’t push harder for no-touch icing.  Isn’t this what a players union is for?  Seems irresponsible and so short-sighted.
