Scary moment in Minnesota tonight, as Corey Perry laid a hit on Jason Zucker that will likely get him suspended by the NHL.
Zucker, chasing the puck into his own zone, turned his head to pass the puck back to a teammate. At that exact moment, Perry came charging in and nailed Zucker with a violent hit to the head. Zucker's head snapped back and he fell to the ice, where he lay motionless for a while as trainers attended to him. Perry was immediately thrown out of the game with a game misconduct and a five-minute interference major. Zucker eventually sat up and was helped off the ice to the locker room.
Pardon me entering my own opinion on this, but I don't see how the NHL can look at that and not decide to suspend Perry for a decent number of games. Intent was there, and the principle point of contact was the head. Either way, here's hoping that Zucker is all right after that scary moment.
