Vicious slash to the chest proves Great Britain hockey is as dirty as North American hockey

vicious slashLet’s celebrate the upcoming return of the NHL by watching this super duper cheap shot, courtesy Kelsey Wilson of the Nottingham Panthers, a team in Great Britain’s Elite Ice Hockey League. Wilson lays the lumber to the solar plexus of Simon Ferguson of the Sheffield Steelers, via a vicious two-handed slash as the unsuspecting Ferguson skates off the ice following a whistle.

Apparently they play a brand of good, old fashioned hockey in Great Britain that would make Eddie Shore proud…or completely disgusted.

Wilson was given a 3-game suspension for his misdeeds, but given the fact that his attack seemed unprovoked and his intent was to injure Ferguson, that number seems a bit low.  A 15-game suspension minimum should have been doled out to Wilson, but a more appropriate action would have been to ban him altogether.  Despite the game’s violent nature, there’s no place for crap like that in hockey.
