The hit by Jared Cowen on Jeff Skinner is illegal hit on two fronts. First Cowen left his feet to make the hit and should result in a charging penalty.
Secondly, through this "elevation" by the 6'5" Cowen, the head o fJeff Skinner, generously listed at 5'11," became the principle point of contact. Given the size differential, combined with the upward launch when Cowen's skates left the ice, it would be next to impossible for Skinner's head not to become the principle point of contact. Jeff Skinner became another concussion statistic for a bad hitting style that must be eliminated.
It is no longer acceptable for any of us to justify hits of this type as being 'good hockey hits' when the head becomes the principle point of contact. The NFL will most likely agree!

Well that time of year has arrived again!
No, not Santa Claus bringing home the goods.
No, this is better, well at least for one international hockey team that can wrest World Junior Hockey Gold from its opponents.
I’d love to hear any predictions on who will win gold.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has a great holiday season with their loved ones!
