Video- Joffrey Lupul’s Elbow Intended For Henrik Sedin Catches Nazem Kadri

 

from Wyatt Arndt of The Legion of Blog at the Vancouver Province,

For those that missed it last night, there was an incident during the game where Lupul tried to throw an elbow in Henrik Sedin’s face, missed, and ended up taking out his own team mate, Nazem Kadri, instead.

Funnily enough CBC didn’t mention this elbow attempt, nor was a replay ever shown. Had this been in the age before social media, it most likely would have seemed like it never happened, but alas, Twitter saw. Twitter sees everything. As a result, we all got to watch as Lupul attempted a pretty cheap shot on Henrik Sedin replayed on Vine posts and YouTube videos.

I can’t believe nothing was mentioned on that play? Just another reason for me mute the sound when Hughson is doing play by play. Shame on Ron McClain and HNIC for ignoring this.

LOL

I wonder if the NHL could punish Lupul, even though there’s no penalty on the play

zqto, read the link - there looks to be a couple options the league has, and if they are at all serious about getting rid of head-shots they should give Lupul a supplementary 1 game message here.

My bad, I didnt think the link would be that much pharmaceutical, beeing a blog and all

But this is the part that makes me think the league cannot act on this:
“A hit resulting in contact with an opponent’s head…”
Technically, there was no contact with any opponent’s head, in the play
hahahaha

i think supplemental discipline would be justified under the ‘attempt to injure’ clause… but they’ll probably let it go, because poetic justice and all. Kadri’s beers are on Lupul for the next while, i would think.
