Hockey Violence in Vancouver

the league’s leading scorer

reaches for the puck


blasted to the face


concussion, stitches


before the playoffs


an opponent’s choice

endangering careers

playoff chances


no penalty called

no league suspension

( no respect ? )


self righteous intentions

standing up for a brother

spiralling out of control


vigilante justice

with sickening consequences



the violence



everyone loses


hockey violence

hockey violence


“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.”

~ Mahatma Gandhi
