The d-man stopped in the danger zone, 5-10ft from the boards. He gets hit and the momentum sends him forward, head first.

If you're gonna get hit, best to go all the way to the wall standing up, shoulder to the glass, so if/when the forechecker hits you, your body bounces off glass/boards harmlessly. Not your head. You can see NHLers do it dozens of times in a game.

And don't turn your face/head/body to face towards the boards. Bad news.
