If this incident happens in the AHL between two nobodies, nobody is even talking about it here. Hockey is a contact sport, with skates that are sharpened more than razor blades. The odd freak injury will happen. But I don't buy for one second that Cooke had any intention to cut Karlsson from behind like that, from a weird angle like this. The guy is a real *******, but he's not a psychopath. People should take a step back and think about it before throwing accusations.
