So? There is a great deal of risk in most pro-sports. I have seen plenty of head and neck injuries in soccer, broken legs and lost teeth. And that is a sport that is far from as physical as hockey. You can not eliminate all the injuries from the game and make it watchable. And hockey fights dont often lead to any serious injuries. Sure, the kid got knocked out and now suffers from a concussion but he knew what he was getting in to when he laced up and decided to drop the gloves. I dont feel sorry for him other then it sucks seeing a person gets injured. Very few players are ever forced in to fighting.
