Peter Laviolette's Tough Start at Rangers Training Camp



The New York Rangers' training camp has begun, but it got off to a bumpy start for head coach Peter Laviolette.

It's not because the players are out of practice or lacking motivation, but due to an unfortunate incident. Arthur Staple of The Athletic recently reported that Laviolette got hit by a puck on the side of his head and had to be helped off the ice by a trainer.

An Unexpected Problem


This surprising event happened at the beginning of the second day of camp last Friday. According to the Rangers' reporter,
"The second #NYR camp group had just started, and it looked like Peter Laviolette got hit by a puck on the side of his head. A trainer helped him to the room."


During the early stages of training camp, when coaches typically focus on guiding players and making minor adjustments to strategies, Laviolette encountered an unforeseen issue. This incident reminds us that hockey can be unpredictable, and everyone involved, including coaches, must be resilient.

Rangers fans and others will surely wish for a quick recovery for their head coach as the team prepares for the upcoming season.
