Former Blackhawks Cup Champ Trends For Controversial Opinion on Adam Johnson's Passing

Tragedy hit the hockey world with the untimely death of player Adam Johnson, who suffered a severe neck injury from a skate during a game.

Now, some former NHL players are questioning if it was truly an accident, and stating the player purposely tried to harm Adam Johnson with his skate blade.

Chris Therrien, who played 764 NHL games, bluntly suggested it might have been intentional.

''After seeing the incident involving Adam Johnson, that Bush league needs to shut down for investigation immediately. I was literally appalled and sickened by what I saw. It looked intentional. It was a Kung fu kick. My eyes are not lying tell me I'm wrong''

''I saw the incident involving Adam Johnson and if the British police do not get involved then the NHL should Step Up and demand an investigation! This was one of the worst things I've ever seen and the worst thing I've ever seen on the ice! It looked like deliberate Act of Retribution or just the act of a sick human being. Either way this needs to be looked at and this bush League needs to consider its future,''
Said Chris Therien on Facebook.

Marc Methot stopped short of that but called it reckless.

Daniel Carcillo also chimed in, pointing out that the incident didn't look like a freak accident, but a purposely harmful act.

These voices add complexity to the ongoing police investigation, but police have asked many to stop sharing conspiracies regarding the event until the investigation is completed, leaving the hockey community grappling with this unfortunate event.
