No disrespect to any player that's been injured during a race to negate an icing call, but these injuries occur on dump-ins as well. This happened to
nearly 6 years ago on a play that started in the neutral zone, but across the red line.
I'd be ok with the Hybrid style, but anyone who thinks these injuries will disappear by eliminating touch icing is mistaken. How many icings are called for every injury like Foster's? The problem in most instances like his is the forechecking player, not the rule. This was not the case with Savage as he
the forechecker- who fell over his opponent who had slipped, leaving him to slide head-first into the end boards.
