Marc Savard: NHL Should Consider Mandatory Suspensions for Headshots

Recommended Posts

Savard, who recently opened up about his struggle with post-concussion syndrome in The Players? Tribune, does think the league can do more to deter players from injuring their peers.


?As I sit here and I think back to the [sidney] Crosby situation with [Matt] Niskanen?I know it doesn?t look deliberate but it?s still a headshot and I think there needs to be a suspension no matter what whether it?s deliberate or not. You still hit the head whether you meant to or not.?


?There needs to be time served for that just so players are even more aware so no matter what it?s an area you can?t hit,? Savard suggested. ?It needs to start at, I don?t know, seven games. It needs to get up in the big numbers right away so it?s that clear.?
