Hit From Behind..

It is hard to say if this was a complete hit from behind because Foote was 100% aware of John Zeiler of the Kings chasing him and following him into the boards.

But...after watching this video a few times I can see Zeiler kind of extending his right arm into the back of Foote and this is inexcusable. Hts like this should warrant a heavy suspension plus sit out for the same amount of time as the injured player does. It doesn't seem right that a hit like this could knock a player out for months while the careless and reckless player only serves a few games and pitches in a fine.

The NHL needs to start cracking down on this immediately. The more players who are injured, especially super star players who are the ones who draw the crowds ($$$), the more problems the NHL will face.

Take a look for yourself and you be the judge.

UPDATE: Zieler was suspended for 3 games.
