“It was an unfortunate accident,’’ Hartnell said. “I think it will show in the video that it was pretty clean. I was going to hit him in the upper body and I didn’t stick out my knee to get a piece of him.’‘
Said Sharks Coach Ron Wilson: “When you stick your elbow in his face and put knee on knee that’s an intent to injure. That’s why he got kicked out of the game.’‘
