Not a clean hit. Point of contact is the jaw. He’s out before his head even hits the ice.  I don’t think it was malicious, but in 2021 that’s not “clean.”

That hasn’t been clean for a decade.  He ran a Khaira blind and high.  Worth a suspension, not just a penalty.

Didn’t he suffer a pretty bad concussion last playoffs as well?

He was released from the hospital this morning after testing.

Prognosis is good but no timeline for return.

Was knocked out and hit the ice
in a fight vs Calgary last season.

Seems like a good team guy but
you have to worry about his health now.
