"Flash-forward a few seasons in the NHL from now. Fights in the game will become less likely if the league looks at the concussion issue in the NFL."
By reading this article I learned that the injury statistics of the NFL are having large effects on the rules of the NHL. The rates of concussions have grown in the NFL over the seasons due to rough contact. With the attempt of preventing these injuries, the NHL is beginning to put restrictions on the violence and fighting terms in the league.
I found it interesting how drastic the punishment is for fighting in the NHL. Fighting for years in the NHL has always resulted in a penalty. The article stated that punishments could eventually increase. It is said that players who fight will be ejected from the game. Depending on how bad the fight was, players involved could face suspension and fines.
I selected this article, because I love hockey, and frequently view NHL games. I enjoy learning more about the league and changes being made within organizations. It is important to me to keep up with the latest news and updates that are happening in the league. I also hope to be a sports broadcaster, so when speaking the game it is an important factor to know what is happening in the NHL and all the rules.
This information will greatly help me in sport management. I hope to work for a team or the NHL or an NHL team. To work in the NHL it is important to know the rules and frequent changes in the league. I even hope to coach a hockey team one day, so it would be important to know the rules.
