Adam Erne was not suspended for his from-behind hit Friday that caused Jonathan Drouin's head to hit the side glass and might have caused a concussion.
But the idea of one Lightning prospect injuring another in a junior Quebec league game raised an interesting question: Is there a responsibility for players in the same organization — likely future teammates, in fact — to play each other more carefully?
Lightning players, for the most part, said the only responsibility is to play the game clean.
"When the game starts, you have no friends," LW Pierre-Cedric Labrie said Saturday. "You have to finish your hits. But if it's an illegal hit, it doesn't matter who it is, you can't do that."
continued and if you missed the hit, watch it below...
Adam Erne, also a Lightning draft pick, was the player who put the hit on Drouin.

Drouin said he had "no clue" the Lightning were considering sending him back to Halifax: “Obviously it was devastating in a way...
You want to make the team as quick as possible. There’s a lot of years in front of me, one year’s not going to change much...
It’s disappointing but I’ve got to move on and help the team win another championship.”
Lightning announced one of the cuts today was Drouin, who will head back to the Halifax Mooseheads.
