Tonight, the Edmonton Oilers beat the Minnesota Wild 4-3 via a shootout, in thrilling come-from-behind fashion. However, right now, my attention is on the health and well-being of Taylor Fedun who I had the pleasure of watching throughout his Alberta Junior Hockey League days. Fedun now, a promising Oilers' prospect sustained a horrific injury on a delayed icing play. Early reports state Fedun suffered a "Complex fracture of the right femur".Some have even suggested this type of injury is career ending... I sure hope not. I was looking forward to seeing Fedun complete his journey to the National Hockey League.I wish Fedun and family all the best throughout the recovery process.It looks like Brendan Shanahan will have another suspension to hand out.The National Hockey League is always looking into rules, is it not time for no touch-icing? This play is exhibit A as to why the NHL needs to adopt the rule as soon as possible!
