Going through something like that will always make you more hesitant and more careful.
Uhhhh... he said what?
He fights for the Leafs, nine times last year. He knows the code. He knows that most fighters mutually agree not to wear facial protection, and he willingly embraced that code.
Now, he can’t.
“No, I don’t have a choice any more,” he said.
Which means his fighting career is now over?
“I can still fight,” he said.
“To keep my job in this league and on this team,” he stated matter-of-factly. “Although I like to believe I’m an asset and my role extends beyond just fighting, it’s part of my game.
“I should be fine with it. The bone is strong again. As long as I don’t take a puck to the face I’ll be fine.”
