Another night, another questionable hit in the NHL.
As the Ducks were moving into the offensive zone late in the second period, Dubinsky stepped up and leveled Koivu. Koivu managed to get off the ice and head to the locker room with some assistance from Ducks trainers.
Here's video of the play.
The Ducks updated Koivu's status during the third period:

Dubinsky was given a game misconduct and sent to the showers early. Expect the NHL Department of Player Safety to get in touch with Dubinsky later this week.
