Numbers 3 and 1 would be 5-8 game suspensions in the NHL right now. As for the others, most happen half a dozen times in every NHL game.

Is boarding not a penalty in the KHL? Most of the hits were pretty weak really. But a couple were certainly Shanny suspension worthy, and may have drawn some attention Pre-Shanny era as well.

#10 was laughable, that wouldn’t even get credit for a hit in most NHL rinks.  #8 was what, a missed hit, he whiffed on him as he fell?

Two were Checking From Behind.  2 or 3 were Headshots.

It really is the wild east over there isn’t it?
