Darryl Sutter couldn’t care less whether players wear helmets during warm-ups

In the wake of Taylor Hall’s gruesome injury, there’s been lots of discussion about making helmets mandatory for NHL players during warm-ups.

Hall was cut for 30 stitches by a teammate’s skate Tuesday in Columbus during the warm-up. The Oilers are advising their players wear helmets whenever they hit the ice, while other teams are considering similar measures.

But one guy that doesn’t care either way? New Kings coach Darryl Sutter.

“They can wear wigs and sunglasses,” Sutter told reporters today. “I don’t care, as long as they’re ready.”
