Not Pats Related

But I thought I would post these video links.

Lane Scheidl of the Rebels kicks Darren Bestland of the Wheat Kings in the face... This could have been BAD. I'm not commenting on whether I think he did it on purpose or not but man it looked dangerous.


Marco Scandella (formerly of Team Canada) has been suspended indefinitely for his hit on Alexandre Durette.... Here is the video of the hit.


One more video. Apparently WHL Referee Graham Skilliter was hit by Brandon McMillan of the Kelowna Rockets and got seriously injured. The video here is the 'aftermath' of the hit. Skilliter was taken off the ice on a stretcher. Even though I get on the officials at times I wish Graham all the best and hope he has a speedy recovery.


That's all for now I think.

As for the kick I don't think it was done on purpose, I think it just more of a reaction thing of trying to get up.The Scandella hit I have seen another video along with the one you have posted. It's a little hard to tell but I'm going to go broderline dirty? Suspension yes, Cormier type no I would say 5games? no more than 10 for sure. I heard about Skilliter over on Regan's blog the other day it would be nice to see how it happened, but yes hope for a speedy recovery.

Swift or P.A. who do you want to win? I'm going with P.A.

I agree with the kick. I think it was a total reaction but very dangerous.

Scandella's elbow didn't look as bad as some of the previous hits but it is the Q and he did get his elbow up.

As for Skilliter getting cranked I don't know if I really want to see the actual hit. The aftermath is bad enough.

Swift or PA? Yikes... I would have to agree with you and go for the Raiders.
