Hard to tell from that clip how much contact he makes. I remember Probert really connecting with a head-butt on Bob McGill back in the day.

I felt the Blues team in TC at the prospect tournament this year was playing a little over the edge with some numbskullery.

Oh well…Lawson Crouse is a massive butthead.

Part of the problem is Crouse has always gone after smaller players
and non fighters, in part because he gets embarrassed when he tries to
fight opponents who know how to handle themselves.
Apparently the headbutt was proceeded by two crosschecks, one pretty high.

Arizona is terrible - very much by design.
Hutton has let in (8) and (6) goals in two games.
They’re going to have lots of moments at the end of games
when they’re getting blown out and are frustrated.
So far, that’s meant even more of Crouse targeting smaller opponents.
Sounds like this is Arizona announcers!

not to minimize the headbutt, but let me minimize the headbutt, that was a pretty light tap, to the face shield of another player, I’m all for them policing that stuff, sure, but going back to the events of this week, a headbutt is not going to break someone’s neck as would a check from behind
