Taylor Hall Injured in Pre-Game Skate

Postby Physical_Graffiti on Tue Jan 17, 2012 8:08 pm

Apparently he stepped on a puck and, as he was falling, was cut near his eye by a teammate's skate. He still may take the ice.

I really don't know why all players don't wear full shields.

Because this happens and more players get concussions when they lead w/ their heads.

A visor would've prevented it from what I read. I don't understand why your aren't required to wear your helmet for warm ups (he wasnt)

How many concussions are there in the CHL/ World Juniors where players are required to wear full masks?

I agree with that; the same risks exist (hell, I'd say they're higher because there are more pucks on the ice).

Ah the video I've seen was bad so I thought he was; my mistake.

For arguments sake, 25% of the players:

but the NHL does not release it's information for us to compare, so the argument is moot:

But they wear visors in Juniors, not cages.

That was my mistake in correlating the two.

Imo, it's dumb: You'll wear half a shield but not a full one? Why not just wear a full one?

Again, go back to my Paille-Malkin video.

If Paille is willing to run his cage into players' faces, then you know there will be guys (Torres, Carcillo, etc) doing the exact same thing.

Leads to more problems, IMO, unless they set a rule for hitting the head (like they do in college)

Rule 48 wouldn't cover it?

No. HAS to be all encompassing.

Paille's hit should've been looked at, but it wasn't, because there is no rule yet that covers a play (or even a headshot).

College is hit to head = 5 min major, game misconduct MINIMUM (I'm sure if they wanted to, they could suspend for really egregious hit)

I'm not a fan of taking it that far. I'm not even a fan of rule 48.

Hall was cut in the forehead by teammate Corey Potter's skate during warmups before Edmonton's game at Nationwide Arena against the Columbus Blue Jackets. He was helped to the dressing room by one of the team's trainers.

Because Hall's injury happened after Edmonton had submitted its official lineup, the Oilers will have only 17 skaters against Columbus

He will probably miss several games I'd imagine simply because it would hurt like cray to put on a helmet! Ouch!
