At just 17-years-old, Adam Jiricek was Destroyed on a Blue Line Hit in the Czechia Extraliga Mens League

There is something to be said about playing as a young prospect in a mens league. Some players have already grown into themselves and can handle it. Other players like Adam Jiricek just may not have been ready.

The 17-year-old 152-pound defenseman was knocked out in a game last night. The man who hit him was nearly 50-pounds heavier and 10 years his senior. Take a look at the hit here.

Seeing this hit was a tough one to watch. Jiricek is much smaller then Jan Scotka and seemingly has not grown into his frame just yet.

Luckily it seems that he will be okay. Here is a update on the condition of Jiricek.



Let's hope that it is not serious. But all leagues should consider the health of young players when it comes to possible hits and concussions like this one.
