Blackhawks Keith Doesn’t Think Players Are More Reckless

Duncan_Keith_Blackhawks_2013 [1]As hockey fans debate another injury-causing hit that’s sure to result in a suspension, we direct you to the comments of one Duncan Keith, defenseman for the Chicago Blackhawks.

“I haven’t 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, you’d see a penalty on every single shift. I think it’s the opposite now. It’s unfortunate that there’s been a few guys taken off on stretchers, and I’d like to think that’s somewhat of a coincidence that it all happened in a week. Hopefully it stops. But it’s a fast-paced game. Injuries can happen.”

Some believe the NHL isn’t doing enough to keep bad hits out of the game, and perhaps there’s more that can be done.
