Kukla's Korner Hockey

Beauchemin might face a hearing this morning with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan after dropping Predators center Mike Fisher in the latter half of the first period with a hit in the neutral zone.
Fisher suffered what the Predators called an “upper-body injury” and did not return to the game. But it was a hit that the rugged blue-liner and the Ducks ardently believe was clean in nature.
“I’m just hoping he’s OK,” Beauchemin said. “Because that’s just one of those fast plays that happens. Just a hit shoulder to shoulder. That’s what the league is looking at and I really had my arm tucked in. (No) elbow. Nothing.
“Maybe the point of the impact of his head on the ice hurt him more than anything else.”
Beauchemin did get two minutes for an illegal check to the head, watch the video and you can decide what is next….
