Hockey Hit

If you heard the discussion on my KMOX show this afternoon about the brutal high school hockey hit and want to see the video, it's in this channel 4 report.

The kid who was hit suffered a grade three concussion and will likely never play any sports again in his life (he was also a top soccer player). The hitter has been suspended for 7 games, but not the rest of the season (which has 12 games left). The question is whether that's a harsh enough penalty for a brutal, flagrant hit like this, and whether there should also be criminal charges filed, as in the Todd Bertuzzi and Marty McSorley cases.
