NHL Finals: Aaron Rome Clobbers Nathan Horton [VIDEO]

Aaron Rome of the Vancouver Canucks hit a defenseless Nathan Horton of the Boston Bruins in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.  The hit will cost both players a chance to compete in the rest of the series.

Nathan Horton sustained a severe concussion and will miss the remainder of the Stanley Cup Finals.  Vancouver Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome will miss the remainder of the Stanley Cup Finals as well. 

The NHL disciplined Aaron Rome for his blindside hit on Nathan Horton by suspending him for four games.  With the Canucks up 2-1 in the series, this means that Rome will see no more action in the series.

Mike Murphy, the NHL’s senior vice president of hockey operations had the following to say about the decision: “Two factors were considered in reaching this decision.  The hit by Rome was clearly beyond what is acceptable in terms of how late it was delivered after Horton had released the puck, and it caused a significant injury.”

This was simply a dirty play.  Rome launched himself into a defenseless player who wasn’t even looking at him.  Unfortunately, Horton was injured badly, which sealed the fate of Rome not being allowed to participate in the remainder of the series.
