Devils’ Not Practicing Due to Zamboni Error


The New Jersey Devils are unable to practice at the moment and a Zamboni is to blame. According to Devils’ beat reporter, Tom Gulitti, GM Lou Lamoriello said the Zamboni cut down too far on a portion of the practice facility’s ice, so it’s unsafe for players to practice.

Of all the things NHL teams need to worry about with regards to player safety, the Zamboni cutting the ice too thin usually isn’t one of them.

Don’t just worry about hits the head or the design of stanchions in the rink, now Zambonis. Who’s got a rink with some open ice time so these guys can get back to work?
