NHL Player Safety should be taking a closer look at a dirty collision that occurred during last night's game between the Edmonton Oilers and LA Kings. In the midst of an intense playoff battle, Kings defenseman Sean Durzi laid a vicious hit on Oilers forward Warren Foegele, leaving many fans and analysts calling for a suspension.

The hit in question resembles the one made by Colorado Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar just two nights earlier, which earned him a one-game suspension.


Durzi was penalized on the play, the league needs to review this hit and take appropriate action to protect the safety of its players.


In a sport as physical as hockey, it's important for players to be held accountable for dangerous hits like this. The NHL must continue to prioritize player safety and take a strong stance against reckless and unnecessary hits on the ice.
