NHL Department of Player Safety fails once again

The only thing consistent about George Parros is his inconsistency.



Stop us if you've heard this one before. George Parros, who is now the head of the National Hockey League Department of Player Safety, isn't very good at his job and is wildly inconsistent at best. 

And we've gotten the latest example in what has been a truly frustrating reign at the helm. During last night's game at Bell Centre in downtown Montreal between the host Montreal Canadiens and visiting Tampa Bay Lightning, Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov injured Montreal's Kaiden Guhle.

The Russian forward, who is currently first overall in the NHL in total points, hit the unsuspecting Guhle from behind late in the 2nd period, injuring him and causing him to leave the game; he did not return. 

Not only was Kucherov inexplicably not penalized for the predatory hit, but now, he's apparently not going to be facing any further discipline.

That's a pretty incredible lack of accountability to one of the League's top superstars.
