NHL GMs discuss how to curb sucker punches after Tom Wilson’s fight with Ian Cole
Representatives from each NHL team are meeting at the Boca Beach Club in Boca Raton, Florida, for the league’s annual GM meetings. The general managers are discussing possible changes to the game.
“It seems like we’re just about perfect,” Vegas Golden Knights GM George McPhee said according to the Canadian Press. “The game is in a really good place in terms of whatever you want to measure.
“It’s just about as good as it’s ever been, which is great news.”
But on Tuesday, George Parros proposed “minor language changes” to the NHL rulebook, according to TSN’s Frank Servalli. The vice president of the NHL’s Department of Player Safety wants more flexibility to dole out supplemental discipline for sucker punches after watching Tom Wilson’s fight with Ian Cole.
