Video- I Agree With Sam Rosen

Carl Hagelin is in a race for the puck in the Dallas offensive zone and Stars’ goaltender Richard Bachman decides to try to reach the puck before Hagelin does.

Hagelin gets to the puck first but also receives 2 minutes for charging.

Watch it play-out below…

Terrible call.

TERRIBLE. Not a fan of either team, but the officiating has hit new lows this year. We can thank the Buffalo Sabres for this one.

That is a surprisingly bad call.  This might be the worst of the year so far.

How can you have a “charging” call when racing for the puck?  I guess if you want to call charging you could call it on Bachman.

I am a Dallas Stars fan.  I have to agree, this was not charging.  Bad call.  I beleive our annoncers agreed!

That’s a new low. The Ranger had position on the puck and the goaltender initiated contact. If anything, the goaltender delivered a body check on the forward. There was no penalty here. What a stupid call.

Watching the replay, Hagelin even tries to STOP. He never intends to hit the goalie a la Lucic. What ref made that call? The ref should fined and/or suspended for that brutally obvious miscall.

Bad call.
So ridiculous it is not even worthy of discussion.

Exactly. Between winning the foot race and that little detail, this was the wrong call.

Got to watch Carl Hagelin play 4 years at the University of Michigan, and he is not a dirty player. That was an absolutely awful call.

I can’t believe the Wings didn’t take a chance and draft Hagelin. The Rangers got a hidden gem with that pick.
