Vancouver Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome broke his hand and minor league forward Steven Pinizzotto dislocated his shoulder during a 4-3 preseason loss to the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night.
Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome wouldn't change much about the hit on Boston's Nathan Horton that got him suspended for the rest of the Stanley Cup finals.
The NHL's general managers agreed Wednesday with a recommendation to broaden the league's definition of illegal hits to the head, likely expanding the scope of a rule enacted last year to outlaw blindside head shots.
The NHL will hold a disciplinary hearing with Vancouver Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome on Tuesday to discuss the blindside hit that sent Bruins forward Nathan Horton to the hospital in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals.
Nathan Horton will miss the rest of the Stanley Cup finals with a severe concussion and Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome is finished too after the NHL suspended him for four games Tuesday for his blindside hit on the Bruins forward during Game 3.

Eleven seconds. That's how long it took the Canucks to win Game 2 in overtime on Saturday night, and that's how long it took Boston to break a scoreless tie at the start of the second period in Game 3.
Bruins forward Nathan Horton was taken off the ice on a stretcher, strapped to a backboard, after a frightening collision with Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome.
Yep, they just announced a scoring change: It's Mark Recchi's goal, and an assist to Michael Ryder and Andrew Ference.
Shortly after the Boston Bruins lost Nathan Horton to a frightening injury, they found a dazzling offensive rhythm that got them back into the Stanley Cup finals.
The Vancouver Canucks might have lost more than Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.
"It's a split-second decision," Rome said. "There's no intent to hurt anybody. If I could go back, obviously I'd wish he didn't get hurt, but I don't think I'd change the decision on the play."
"You want to be a part of it," Rome said. "Just because I'm not playing, I'm not going to mope about it and hide in a cave. It's a way to relieve some stress and be part of it. ... This is nothing that you want to go through, but it makes you stronger and makes you look on the bright side of things."
