Rocky wanted Ovechkin out for season
Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz wants to crack down on dangerous hits in the NHL.
Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz believes Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin knew what he was doing when he injured Hawks defenseman Brian Campbell on March 14, and Wirtz believes Ovechkin should have been suspended for the rest of the season.
Ovechkin was suspended two games for the hit, which fractured Campbell's clavicle and a rib. Campbell was expected to miss 7-8 weeks.
