Bo Byram hurt again, likely from dirty hit



Bo Byram will miss today’s game for the Avalanche against Vegas because of an upper-body injury, and the worry is that it’s concussion-related. That’s the worry anyway.

Byram was likely hurt on this hit from Vegas’ Keegan Kolesar in Thursday’s game, in which Kolesar leapt off his feet. I wholeheartedly agree with Altitude’s Mark Rycroft, wondering why this didn’t result in either a fine or a suspension?

It wasn’t even a penalty on Kolesar. Jared Bednar was highly critical of the hit Thursday. This won’t do anything to dispel the conspiracy theorists that Vegas gets preferential treatment from the NHL in matters like these.

The NHL is losing its credibility!!! The NHL says it is unacceptable to hit players in the head, leave their feet to make a hit, this happens to Byram and then nothing happens except a potential NHL star defenseman is out with a concussion. Total bullshit. NHL player safety, what a joke. Mack gets kneed and gets the penalty because he loses control of his stick after being kneed and Mack gets the penalty. And after today’s loss to Vegas, can anyone really say what interference is. Officiating is hard, I get it, but it really seems to be doing… Read more »
