Aaron Ward said, “I remember everything for the hit, I went to the corner, another guy was on my left shoulder and the puck was in the corner and we were both going in at a pretty good speed and once I got about, maybe four feet from the boards, I felt a little nudge on my back and on my should and I could tell that he was trying to push me into the boards and that’s usually, you know that’s a dirty play, a dirty kind of move. Sometimes it happens so fast the other player doesn’t even know what they’re doing.”
He is the team president for Utah State University’s hockey team. Due to multiple concussions in the beginning of the season, he’s not only sitting out until he recovers, he won’t be returning.
