Get with the times NHL -Spitting on the ice should be an automatic penalty leading to possible suspension during the Covid era.

This needs to be addressed by the NHL!


I find it hard to believe that the NHL is still condoning spitting on the ice. I see it every game. Not only is this action classless, but disrespectful to the fellow players and coaches, and to all; in consideration of Covid.  We must do all we can to protect players, coaches, staff, family and community.


Not sure of the ramifications of transmitting Covid it may have; but conventional wisdom would suggest maybe this is not a good idea.

How long does Covid live on the ice? Can Saliva on the ice still be contagious weeks later?

Could this be a contributing reason why so many players and coaching staff get infected?


Time to evolve and get with the times.
