Lucas Raymond victimized by dangerous hit

This is the kind of hit that can ruin careers.



These are the kinds of hits that can ruin careers.

Detroit Red Wings forward Lucas Raymond was victimized by a dirty knee-on-knee hit courtesy of New York Rangers forward Vincent Trochek during the 2nd period of tonight's game at Madison Square Garden: 

J.T. Compher would immediately come to his teammate's aid, challenging Trocheck to drop the gloves before they were both halted by the on-ice officials.

The good news is that Raymond appears no worse for wear after understandably being a bit slow to get back to his skates, and has remained in the game.

However, this is the kind of hit that can result in a serious injury. The NHL Department of Player Safety ought to consider looking into Trocheck's actions tonight.
