Those kids can play in a no contact league then.
It scares me what we could start seeing in Major Junior with this. Some kid who has barely learned about checking being hit by a guy much bigger and stronger than him?
This is going to get bad, quick. Kids may start quitting even more when they see the size differences among 14/15 year olds and, oh ****, we were never taught to hit.
