Lazarus questioned why such incidents are accepted and even glorified as part of the game, particularly when targeting star players.

"NEW: In the NHL, dangerous cheap shots like this one by Josh Manson on Connor Bedard are shrugged off — embraced, even — as just "part of the game." It's always open season, especially on star players. Why do we allow this? Why do we want this? "
Said Lazarus.


He raised concerns about the discipline of such actions and urged for a reevaluation of the league's stance on player safety.
