Fans react to Adam Johnson's death
A user wrote, "Anyone who thinks this was intentional has never played hockey before. This was an accident with a horrific outcome."
One more user wrote, "The league will have to give this a close look. There seemed to be a collision right before the spin and kick to the throat. I would hate to accuse a player of wreck less homicide if it was a hockey accident. If they determine it was purposeful, then he needs to be prosecuted and kicked out of the league."
Another user wrote, "Sad. The fact he tried to skate it off tells me that hockey players are the toughest athletes on the planet. Prayers to team, players, family"
