Ness gets rocked in preseason action

september 18, 2019
The Coyotes Aaron Ness did not return to the game after a huge first period hit from Golden Knights Keegan Kolesar. It happened during a split-squad game between the two teams Tuesday night. Ness, a 29-year-old defenseman, seems to fumble the puck near the red line and was caught with his head down as a result. You can watch the hit here:



Kolesar was assessed a five-minute major for charging, but no game misconduct. He later returned to the game. Ness, who has spent the vast majority of his career in the AHL, was held out for the remainder of the match. There's no word yet on the extent of his injuries.

There is a lot of debate on social media over whether the hit was clean or not. Many feel the hard check wouldn't have done as much damage had Ness not been hunched over and had his head up. Others says it was completely unnecessary and reckless.

“Honestly, that’s a part of my game,” Kolesar said to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I have to use my size to my advantage, and when the hit presents itself, I’m going to take full advantage of it. Unfortunately, he got hurt.”

This isn't the first time this year that Ness has been involved in a scary incident on the ice. While playing with the Hershey Bears of the AHL in April, he went headfirst into the boards after being hauled down by Bridgeport’s Travis St. Denis. He had to be stretchered off the ice

In your opinion, is this a clean hit?
