Quick Sketch, New NHL headshot rule

So here's another quick drawing I did while watching the Penguins game yesterday. As anyone who's being paying attention to Hockey lately probably knows, this season they added a new rule to the NHL, NO HEAD SHOTS. It was frowned upon before but now they are trying to refine it and make the rule clearer to avoid players getting seriously injured.

They seem pretty dead set on making an example out of players this preseason already handing out multiple game suspensions for hits they deem too violent on "defenseless" players who don't see the hit coming.  It's been interesting to watch people like Cooke from the penguins change his game around and try to be a more upstanding citizen on the ice.
