If you missed the hit it can be viewed here.
from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,
They could be without Booth, who departed in the third after skating into a stiff elbow from Sami Vatanen....
Horachek did say a Marlie call-up was likely with Booth possibly concussed.
more on the Leafs' 4-0 loss to the Ducks...
Here is the hit and no penalty on the play and the CP at TSN on the elbow
David Booth went to the Leafs' dressing room in the third period after checking Sami Vatanen and getting hit in the head by an inadvertent elbow.
ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed defenseman Sami Vatanen to a two-year contract through the 2015-16 NHL season. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Vatanen, 23 (6/3/91), scored 6-15=21 points with a +9 rating and 22 PIM in 48 games with the Ducks last season. Among rookie NHL defensemen, Vatanen ranked tied for fifth in goals, fourth in points-per-game (.44) and sixth in plus/minus.
Well that time of year has arrived again!
No, not Santa Claus bringing home the goods.
No, this is better, well at least for one international hockey team that can wrest World Junior Hockey Gold from its opponents.
I’d love to hear any predictions on who will win gold.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has a great holiday season with their loved ones!
