Player Safety video examines accidental collisions
The NHL's Department of Player Safety unveiled its "accidental collisions" video, the sixth in a series of educational videos.

The National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety on Tuesday unveiled its "Accidental Collisions" video, the sixth in a series of educational videos designed to help players and fans better understand how specific infractions are viewed and evaluated, what is legal and what merits the assessment of Supplemental Discipline.

This latest video takes viewers through the dynamics involving various on-ice collisions and why many are determined to have occurred accidentally.

During the course of the season, the department will produce videos focusing upon other types of incidents and infractions, as well.

The Department of Player safety has already released five other instructional videos:

'Evolution of a Suspension' which detailed the multi-step process that the department undergoes any time an incident might require the imposition of supplemental discipline can be viewed here.

'Goaltender Interference,' which detailed how the department reviews goalie interference incidents, can be viewed here.

'Tripping/Slew-Footing,' which detailed how the department reviews tripping and slew-footing infractions, can be seen here.

'Kneeing,' which detailed how the department reviews kneeing infractions, can be seen here.

'Clipping/hip checking,' which detailed how the department reviews clipping/hip-checking infractions, can be seen here.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
