Hey, does the fact he suffered the injury during an NHL game mean he'll collect an NGL salary for the full year? I recall that one of the Sweatt brothers had this happen to him last season and he ended up just retiring off the proceeds. Do you think Fedun catches this kind of break? I sure hope so. Hate to see this happen to a good old Fort boy.

I hope the Oilers org gives him something even if they don't have to.

I feel awful for the kid though, a multi-million dollar career for him might have just been snatched away.

Its just so damned lazy/callous and bushleague for Nystrom to do what he did.

The other thing is....Fedun has zero experience on touch icing...and the reason being.....

....Touch icing is a stupid & needless rule which MANY hockey leagues around the world do not utilize for obvious reasons.
With all due respect, it's not bush league. It's what every player on every team (minus the goalies) has done many times each season. The fact that the NHL refuses to change the rule is the sickening part of it.

The NHL is so full of **** sometimes,
for example, they blame the players for everything..yet they promote it the exact opposite of what theyre preaching to the players..
Theyre handing out large suspensions, but at the same time they promote the game using violence as a key promotion tool..and at the same time they have never cared to look at players shoulder pads..if Im in the NHL of course am I gonna wear those cement shoulder pads cuz if I dont always finish my hits because Im not wearing steel armor, I will get benched by my coach..
Same thing with this Icing rule..so retarded...like another poster mentioned, Foster almost lost his life because of stupid icing..here a very promising defender for the Oilers who at the very least wouldve had a very successful minor league career may never play pro hockey again..
I honestly feel for the guy, hope he recovers..but the NHL needs to step in before more players get hurt this way..I dont care that this hockey season is pretty much underway already..put that no touch rule in..
I dont find it evern exciting to see a player win an icing call..it just freaks the crap out of me when I see two players flying into the boards like that..

Everyone's probably seen it by now, but complex fracture of right femur - confirmed by Oilers via Twitter. Sad, really sad.

Yes. Your right. It is the rule itself which creates these situations.

I mean...its easy for me to sit here and say these guys should know better....but....they don't and I guess its just too tempting to get your stick in there or put a hand on a guy. These players play at high speed at all times and they maybe forget how dangerous it is to interefere with another players feet and/or balance when he's not expecting it.

Im just like everyone else...I HATE the rule. Its NOT exciting to watch 99% of icing plays.

The occasional good foot race isn't worth the injuries. Not even close.

And the thing is...the entire game could improve in terms of flow and creativity if they go back to the conventional rule.

no one goes in with there stick at the players feet on a play they know they can't win like that they might put it by the player but to box him in with stick and the body on an icing is just ridiculous and unnecessary on a preseason game

He was careless with his stick going at top speed into the end boards, this injury could end this guys career or at the very least derail it significantly.

Agreed, very careless and dangerous play by Nystrom he was clearly beaten on the play and had no ****ing business making a lazy attempt to touch the puck,

Better yet, who ****ing cares? Hopefully he crawls back into the hole that he was in before he decided to post on twitter acting as if he knows the ins and outs of the game better than a pro athlete does.

What i was thinking. Big part of development is learning to protect oneself in such situations. Sad day. Not even our prospect got injured, but because that kid's dream may have died on that no icing call.

I realize Nystrom didn't 'intend' to hurt him, but he was negligent. There should be some sort of suspension just based on his stupidity. On another note....someone on the Oilers staff better shut down Hall before it gets completely out of hand. This is why it's better not to allow the players twitter accounts...you can't expect people to moderate themselves, let alone million dollar athletes who have to deal with people trying to bait them. Oilers PR...if you are reading this, you had better get out in front of this one.

For all the talk about head shots and protecting the players, this is such a simple change. One that would protect players from potentially career ending injuries. I just don't get why they don't switch the rule. How many times is a guy beat to the puck on an icing and even then, how many times does that lead to a goal.

Bingo, if you had posted this a little quicker I wouldn't have just typed the exact same thing in my post below yours. It was a lazy and very dangerous play. May another player give as much of a **** about his well being in a similarly defenseless situation, maybe after awhile some of these kinds of d-bags will weed themselves out.

This is a very dangerous and can be a life threatening injury. A complex fracture....sounds very serious. The definition of a complex fracture is as follows "a closed fracture in which the soft tissue surrounding the bone is severely damaged."

What could he have really done differently? Had he slowed up and waited for contact he could've been driven head first into the boards or perhaps the stick comes in then and he still goes ass over tea kettle, the bottom line is that many times in life you have to put some faith in someone that you won't get hurt by them, you hope that others will look after your safety and well being like you would for them.

His professional contract is insured. Who knows what the terms are.

Hopefully it won't matter and the young man will get to continue pursuing his dream once he recovers. It won't be for a long time though. Probably 2 years before he'll get another chance at the NHL.

Kurtis Foster and Robyn Regehr have been able to recover from similar injuries.

Just an aside.

Kevin Lowe has been on the fence about no touch icing for a long time.

It would be a good move for him to come out agressively for changing the rule now.

I don't usually give much attention to trolls, but Hall has just ***** slapped some trolls on twitter. Seriously as long as people can be anonymous or have the law protect them from ass kickings you will have scum like this trying to stir the pot because they don't have the balls to pull it off in their day to day lives. ****ing cowards.
