... and this is how you should react to an illegal hit.
“I accept the NHL’s decision and ruling" Doan said. "I am thankful that Jamie Benn was not hurt on the play. I recognize how bad it looked but there was no intent to injure him. Jamie Benn is a class act and I appreciate how he handled everything. I apologize to the NHL, my teammates and our fans for missing the next three games as we continue to fight for a playoff spot.”
I don't remember if the question was asked here or another thread, but I think this statement makes it pretty clear Gaglardi and Doan aren't going to have any issues running a WHL team together.
That statement even makes me regret hopping Doan faces clean, on-ice justice by way of a fight next season. I still say players policing themselves is important, but this clearly isn't a guy that needs a reminder he screwed up or that those actions won't fly against Dallas players. Unlike Tootoo needing seem old fashioned, clean hockey justice after the Robidas fiasco several years ago.
