A former NHLer is at the center of some controversy in Sweden. After an incident in the SHL, Peter Holland, a former 15th overall pick, is responsible for the end of Fredrik Styrman's career. Holland played 266 NHL games with 4 different teams before his move to the SHL.

After the puck was frozen a scrum broke out, Holland grabbed Styrman. Before Styrman could drop his gloves or engage, Holland landed a hard uppercut to the face. The blow sent Styrman to a knee.

Holland was suspended for 4 games and fined $4,000 for the incident. Unfortunately for Styrman the blow ended his season. Today Styrman announced via Sport Bladet that the punch has officially ended his career.
It feels awful that it ended the way it did. I still get concussion symptoms when I exert myself and the doctors have advised me not to continue playing.

I can't dwell on it any more. It is what it is. I don't feel sorry for myself. There's so much shit going on in this world, and there are a lot of people worse off than me. But of course I'll miss hockey.

While this is clearly just an unfortunate result, it's terrible though that this has brought the end to a players career.
