Downie Not So Fresh

mex-grocer_1966_21733623.jpgIf any of you are familiar with Steve Downie (or even if you’re not, I guess), he has quite a reputation in Juniors as a hot head and a cheap shot artist.  In the last WJC tournament, he played it mostly clean and was a very effective player for Canada. 

 Fast forward to tonight:  Downie is trying to make the Flyers squad out of camp and was in the lineup tonight.  Early in the second period, he charged Dean McAmmond and left his feet to clean him out against the boards.  McAmmond left the ice on a stretcher with blood flowing from his nose and mouth and unable to move his arms. 

All my best thoughts to Dean McAmmond and to Mr. Downie…..well, you’ve probably heard of “The Code”.
