Absolutely tragic event took place in the Swiss League in playoff game.
Prayers go out to Ronny and his family.
Now on to the issue, this kind of play happens far too often and major injuries like this have been avoided in the NHL SO FAR. The hit by Kaleta on Brad Richards the other night is a prime example of these types of hits and had the speed been a bit higher who knows what could have happened to Richards.
I played minor hockey growing up and a few times this happen to me, of course, not at that speed or high of impact. It is a scary play and very dirty.
Clearly this should be addressed not only in the Swiss league but all of hockey, period.
For those interested, just youtube the players name and you'll see a video of it.
