Ben Fanelli, who plays(ed) hockey for the Kitchener Rangers (OHL) and was hit by Erie Otters player Michael Liambas. Ben went down immediately and was air lifted to Hamilton Hospital. He has a fractured skull and a fractured orbital bone.
This hit has 2 clear penalties. A charging major (roughly defined as 3 or more strides in an attempt to hit another player) and an elbowing major, which is shown in the second clip where Liambas elbow makes clear, un-interfered contact with Ben Fanelli's head.
A little more info, Ben Fanelli is only 16 and already playing in the OHL, so chances are he had a good future in hockey. Also Liambas is notorious for being a goon. He has been suspended for the remainder of the regular season and the playoffs. In my opinion, the punishment should fit the crime and chances are Fanelli won't be playing hockey again, so Liambas should not be either.
I like how he casually dropped the "I'm famous" bomb.
