Statement from Aaron Rome

06/07/2011 at 4:15pm EDT

Earlier today, Aaron Rome was suspended for 4 games by the NHL, for his hit on Nathan Horton. Rome has released this personal statement:

I want to express my concern for Nathan’s well being and wish him a quick and full recovery. I try to play this game honestly and with integrity. As someone who has experienced this type of injury I am well aware of its serious nature and have no desire for another player to experience it. I will not take away my teammates’ focus on the task at hand and intend to speak at an appropriate time in future.
