    I guess it was only a matter of time.  However, without video we can only speculate on the maliciousness of the hit.  It's a rough game.

    R.I.P.
    My thoughts and prayers are with Dmitri Uchaykin's family and friends.

    Unfortunately, it's only a matter of time before this will happen again - quite possibly in the NHL.

    Agree with sentiment of thoughts and prayers for his family. 

     

    More media outlets picking up on the story.

    As bad as it sounds I would like to see what happened. Morbid curiousity? RIP tradgic to hear about and this should be a wakeup call for a lot of those morons that run around with no regard for other players.

    RIP

    I think we all realized this was inevitable at some level of the game.

    I've got null on ignore, so I don't know what he said, but I'm certain it's offensively inappropriate for a thread that's expressing condolences over a tragedy. How low can a human being get?

    Have seen some references to it not being a hit to the head, with Uchaykin leaving the game without assistance according to a Finnish player on the bench. Given today's date and the below article in Finnish (and difficulties in translation), you can't put too much stock in any report right now.

    Like with Cherepanov(sp?), it is hard not to wonder if having NHL trainers and medical care might have made a difference.  Sounds like a left the ice, and then things went steeply down hill.

    Makes you think about the beer league hockey too, where if something serious happens, 20 lard-a**es stand around and ask you if you're okay for 10 minutes before an ambulance is eventually called.  Plenty of risk in this game, at every level.

    Fletch sounds like my beer-league where the refs don't do jack-diddly and things escalate and people start fighting. Fun times.

    hey lets keep fightin, just boys being boys.. its only death.... hope the diehards enjoyed their bloodlust!

     




    You took my remark out of context a bit.  It's truly shocking and sad someone died from a hit to the head, no argument there.  But honestly, how much more can the NHL do to prevent head shots?  They have the rules in place, now the players have to follow them.  I hope they all do, but some won't.  As has been discussed here forever, short of making it a no-check league, there will always be questionable hits.  I hope no-one else pays with their life.  Bottom line, it's a rough sport.  Is that better?
