Former NHL Player Sparks Controversy With Apparent Intentional Kick In The Face

In a recent Swedish National League game, former NHL player Martin Frk sparked major controversy. The play first started when he missed a hit that landed him headfirst in his own bench. He then apparently intentionally kicked his opponent in the chest/neck area.


Translation:
Horrible skate kick from Frk on Pilut! Intentional or unintentional?



After the recent tragic incident involving Adam Johnson, there is alot of sensitivity to player safety especially with skate blade incidents. Fortunately, no severe injuries resulted from this play.

Immediate Ejection And Expected League Punishment for Martin Frk



Frk faced immediate consequences as he was ejected from the game. Regardless of intent or not the decision to remove him from the game was the appropriate one. This emphasizes the importance of maintaining control over your skates, especially in intense moments.

Reports indicate that the league is considering supplemental punishment for Frk. We believe the punishment will be significant enough to send a message to other players in the hockey world.
