via Sportsnet's YouTube channel,

Watch FULL media availability from Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele after receiving a 4-game suspension for his headshot on Canadiens forward Jake Evans that sent him off on a stretcher. Scheifele says Evans' health is first thing on his mind, hoping for a quick recovery, also explains the hit from his perspective, his emotions before and after, and why he thinks the hit wasn't bad, also says he can accept the punishment, but can't accept the abuse his family is taking over this, and much more.

Agree with everything up until he said he was just trying to make contact at the post to prevent a goal, NOT make a hit.  Everything else I believe though, hes a hockey nut, true fan of the game.  I heard whenever guys call him when they arent playing, hes watching the other games.  Hes a good player, just a bad play.  Evans is ok, justicr handed out, drive on imo.
