His team was up 7-3 and he shot it in and then accelerated towards the goalie and then snows him. anyone who says that was not his intent is either blind or lying. I dont buy the feigning of ignorance that comes with such a transgression because he end up with the short end of the stick.
Do I like the fact that he caught a beating, no. but the kid is certainly not blameless and as unpopular as this position will be, his own actions precipitated what happened. That's not to simply dismiss the lack of etiquette by the player who kept throwing them, but to paint the kid as some blameless victim is completely unwarranted.
