Injury is a potential result of hurting someone. It's just a subset of a whole. Players hit to hurt. No doubt about that. They implicitly accept the potential of injuring someone when they hit to hurt.

What I find more laughable is the enforcer's mentality, that they also adopt a similar rationale that they never really want to see guys get injured when their job is to basically have a fistfight out on the ice.
