Does hockey need to get tough on players who deliver shots to the head? Mon, January 18, 2010
Mikael Tam of the Quebec Remparts was listed in stable condition in hospital after taking an elbow to the head from Rouyn-Noranda centre Patrice Cormier, who captained Canada at the recent world junior hockey championship.
This is just the latest in a series of vicious head shots at the NHL and junior levels this season.
There was speculation that the QMJHL, which has come down hard on cases of violence this season, will suspend Cormier for the rest of the season and perhaps for the playoffs.
