As strange as it sounds, add Steve Ott’s name to the growing list of NHL players who want action taken against head shots.
Ott, the Dallas Stars’ irascible, oft-suspended forward, was on the receiving end of a head-high elbow in Tuesday’s game against the San Jose Sharks. Dany Heatley was called for interference on the play but not elbowing.
After the game, which included other head-shot incidents, Ott said he expected the NHL to review what he called “Heatley’s little cheap shot.”
“If this doesn't get looked at, I don't know. I guess when you're used to being on the other end and being suspended in the past, I think it's pretty evident where this stuff should go in a hurry,” Ott told reporters. “I don't care if Heatley makes $10-million or ([Sharks’ defenceman Doug] Murray makes less, it's time to get this out of the game as fast as we can. Protect the guys. We're going to have guys that are going to be icing heads now. You only have one brain, so let's honestly start figuring something out.”

Hey Dany- if you ever get this opportunity again, please make sure your elbow hits his mouth. Thanks!
