It’s been a week of heavy and questionable hits in the NHL, the most recent recipient, Anaheim Ducks forward Dustin Penner. During last evenings contest against Dallas, Stars Ryan Garbutt left Penner laid out on the ice. In a scary few moments where it was unclear if Penner would even get up, he gingerly made it to his skates and was helped off the ice with the assistance of teammates.

Many hope that the hits don’t keep coming, but if this week in the NHL is any indication, that hope sadly isn’t a probable one.
