Time for no-touch icing

It's time to go to no touch icing.

Let’s face it, the game has changed dramatically in the past 20 years. The speed is much greater so injuries are far more likely. It's not worth a serious injury for the 1 in 500 times that the offensive player actually beats the defensive player to the puck.

The injuries are often horrific and are not worth it. More often than not it is an automatic icing anyway.
