The hockey world was rocked by the tragic loss of former Pittsburgh Penguins forward Adam Johnson over the weekend. At just 29 years old, Johnson's life was cut short when he suffered a fatal injury, struck in the neck by an opponent's skate during a game between the Nottingham Panthers and the Sheffield Steelers of the Elite Ice Hockey League.

While Johnson's passing is a devastating loss, there are already indications that his legacy may include measures to prevent such a tragedy in the future.
The events of the weekend have deeply affected the hockey community, prompting calls for change from within the sport.
Columbus Blue Jackets head coach Pascal Vincent, no stranger to the spotlight following the Mike Babcock controversy, has spoken out about the need for additional player protection to prevent similar incidents.
He emphasized the importance of safeguarding players' necks, asking, "What's the cost?" and urging a reevaluation of safety measures, including the use of neck guards.
Vincent's passionate plea resonates with many, and it's likely to gain momentum in the hockey community. The hope is that Johnson's legacy will extend beyond his tragic passing and help save lives on the ice.
