Hockey Players all have insurance for that. If he tears his ACL or gets a concussion forcing him to retire, an insurance company will write him a big fat check. I know, cause my childhood friend got a big fat cheque for retireing early from the NHL.

Not saying what he did was less admirable, just wanted to point that out. I am sure in his mind, he knows either way - he is getting paid.
