In response to the tragic incident involving the late Adam Johnson, who suffered a neck injury from a skate, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly recently disclosed that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has been actively collaborating with Marty Walsh of the NHL Players' Association to address the crucial matter of neck protection.


During a conversation with NHL Network Radio, Daly emphasized the NHL's heightened commitment to promoting the use of neck guards. The heartbreaking episode involving Johnson has prompted an urgent reassessment of player safety in the league, leading the NHL to take proactive steps to reduce the risks associated with such accidents.

While it can't erase the sorrow caused by Johnson's loss, this renewed dedication to player safety underscores the importance of preventing similar tragedies in the future.
