Brendan Shanahan explains the cause of the suspension, an illegal forearm to the head.
Early twitter talk is some calling it a collision with both players reaching for the puck, others say hea dshot.
Hansen received 2 for roughing.
Nashville’s Shea Weber will have a disciplinary hearing Friday afternoon following a boarding penalty assessed to the Predators defenseman for a hit on Vancouver’s Jannik Hansen during Thursday’s game.
At 5:12 of the third period, Weber was penalized for boarding Hansen, and also given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
At NBC’s ProHockeyTalk, Mike Halford adds some thoughts:
The question now is if Weber will be considered a repeat offender. In Nashville’s previous game — a 3-1 loss to Edmonton — Weber also received a two-minute boarding minor for nailing Jordan Eberle. No, Weber wouldn’t be a repeat offender in the traditional sense. Yes, he could still be classified as one.

The good news is Jannik Hansen won the fight. The bad news is he could be lost for 4-6 weeks or longer with a broken hand.
The worst part is the regular season starts Thursday.
Hansen’s right hand was grotesquely misshapen after a fight with former Vancouver Giants’ junior Gilbert Brule during the Canucks’ 5-4 pre-season overtime loss Sunday against the Edmonton Oilers.
“Obviously, it’s not very good timing,” Hansen said. “It’s very swollen. I’m not quite sure how bad it is.”
