Blackhawks Keith Doesn't Think Players Are More Reckless

Duncan_Keith_Blackhawks_2013As hockey fans debate another injury-causing hit thats sure to result in a suspension, we direct you to the comments of one Duncan Keith, defenseman for the Chicago Blackhawks.

I havent noticed guys getting more reckless, Keith said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. I think if you look back and watch games from the 1990s and the 80s, youd see a penalty on every single shift. I think its the opposite now. Its unfortunate that theres been a few guys taken off on stretchers, and Id like to think thats somewhat of a coincidence that it all happened in a week. Hopefully it stops. But its a fast-paced game. Injuries can happen.

Some believe the NHL isnt doing enough to keep bad hits out of the game, and perhaps theres more that can be done.
