Here We Go Again: Carle Sideswiped by Kopecky

It's a new season and that can only mean one thing -- more head shots. Even though it's pre-season that doesn't mean guys are letting up. Take this hit by Detroit's Tomas Kopecky on Montreal's Mathieu Carle from earlier tonight. Concussion city. Right now, Carle is in the hospital. Apologies for sounding like a broken record but this is getting old and sad.

There isn't any video out there yet that I can embed, but RDS has the video here. As soon as I can embed something here, I will.


  1. Funny how the announcers thought it was the Matt(hew) Carle that used to be on the Sharks. Different guy- the Sharks' Matt Carle was traded to the Lightning in the offseason. I don't know if they are related or not, but I do know they aren't brothers.

  2. Clean hit... Gotta keep your head up..

  3. Could have been an elbow... hard to tell from the angle and lack of replay.
