The problem is, Edlers most successful option is to get there first and block Hertls path to the puck. But of course Hertl is leading with his head so any contact could very well be head contact
If Edler would have gone straight for the puck, then he would have taken the brunt of the impact. I can't see that play being taught any other way.
This is why it will be virtually impossible to get head contact out of the game. Head shots maybe. Head contact, No way.
