The Ontario Hockey League is hoping to start a shortened season on February 4 and will not be allowing bodychecking.Bodychecking will not be allowed in upcoming Ontario Hockey League season — ProHockeyTalk | NBC Sports
How is this even hockey!?!?!? If there gonna let the kids play hockey why not bodycheck? This is one of the most important parts of hockey! I bet you there will be more fist fights because players won’t be able to let out there stress by body checking someone.
I normally go to watch Sudbury Wolves games with my pepere which is grandpa in french. I bet you it won’t be as fun anymore especially since Quinton Byfield got drafted into the NHL by LA plus no body checking that’s just sad, very sad. It’s sort of a good thing that he got drafted into the NHL and probably won’t be coming back because he is a very physical player and the NHL allows body checks which is good.
But I am telling you right know that if the OHL wonders why they are getting so many fights I’ll be the saying told you it was a bad idea. Because more players get injured during fights than when body checking.
But don’t thank me. Thank my dad because he is the reason I know things like this.
