Video- Dion Phaneuf Hit On Kevan Miller Draws The Attention Of The NHL

via the NHL,

Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf will have a hearing Tuesday morning with the NHL's Department of Player safety for a hit on Boston Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller during a game Sunday night at Air Canada Centre.

The incident occurred at the 17:39 mark of the third period when Phaneuf struck Miller in the back near the end boards in the Boston end. Miller left the game and did not return.

There was no penalty called on the play.

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: boarding. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.

Another absolutely brutal hit by Phaneuf goes unpenalized.  How these refs keep missing calls like this, epecially when they happen with the play, I’ll never understand.

Hit to the head, boarding, and an all round dick move.  But thats Phaneuf, and thats how Carlyle likes his teams to play.

It’s sometimes quite hard to remain a fan of this league.
