Dallas Stars defenseman Roman Polak was taken off the ice on a stretcher during the Stars' opening game of the season against the Boston Bruins after slamming into the sideboard. This moment was unceremoniously MC'd by Bruins play-by-play man Jack Edwards, who dubbed the frightening injury as "bad hockey karma."

Allan Walsh, Polak's agent, affirmed that he and Polok have great respect for the Bruins and their players, but made it a point to call out Edwards' remarks while his client was lying motionless on the ice, calling him a "pice of s*** and an absolute disgrace."

No walking that one back.

While there was a bit of a push from a Bruins player, it doesn't appear that there was any ill intent in this play. Still, this moment called for some somber reflection, not Edwards dismissing it out of hand as something that comes with the territory.

Hopefully Edwards realizes the magnitude of his mistake and comes out with an apology, because his reaction was totally out of line.
