It would be a good idea for the GOJHL to address blindside hits like the OHL is doing. It will eventually come in. It would be much more useful than the focus we put on where goalies stand or if players flinch before the last note of the national anthems or if a chin strap is undone before both feet are off the ice. I heard minor hockey is instituting an automatic match for a slew foot that the OHL has had for years. It was an alleged blindside hit that took London's top player out for most of last season, and slewfoots are just as dangerous. I don't think I have ever seen a player get a season or career ending injury for shuffling his feet on the blueline during a National anthem.
