We've seen some dirty plays in hockey before, but one of the most dirty plays you can do if a spear to someone groin.

We've seen in the past a few players do this in the NHL, which was always met by a fine by the league, but the punishment should be more severe. The most recent example of this that this writer can think of was Alexander Ovechkin on Trent Frederic:



Ovechkin was given a minor penalty and fined $5000.


Now in a KHL game yesterday, former NHL player Yegor Korshkov was given a 5+20 min penalty for spearing, which looks to have caused serious injury.
