Erik Gudbranson gets match penalty for hit on Eric Fehr

Erik Gudbranson will probably be hearing from the NHL for this hit on Eric Fehr.

Business has been booming for Brendan Shanahan and the NHL department of player safety over the past week, because players around the league keep doing dumb things. They don't appear to have any interest in stopping.

The latest potential contestant to spin the NHL's wheel of discipline: Florida Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson for this hit on Washington Capitals forward Eric Fehr in the second period on Friday night.
