Adam Johnson's recent tragic loss in the EIHL in England has reignited concerns about player safety in the NHL.


Incidents like Evander Kane's wrist injury from a skate have highlighted the pressing need for improved safety measures in the league.

The heartbreaking loss of Johnson underscores the vital importance of protecting players' necks from potential harm. Notably, the AHL affiliate of the Boston Bruins, the Providence Bruins, has taken proactive steps by introducing neck protection for their players.



In a significant development, the NHLPA is actively pushing for standardized neck protection equipment in upcoming contract negotiations, recognizing it as a crucial safety requirement.

The league is fully committed to player safety, and this unfortunate incident underscores the urgency of addressing this critical concern.
