There have been a number of hits to the head recently. This one, like Chris Neil's hit on Chris Drury, came well after the play moved away from the player that was hit.
I have no issue with players finishing their checks. But, they should not follow through to the head of the player checked. That can be a career ender.
Cam Janssen of the New Jersey Devils has been suspended for three games for his hit on Toronto defenceman Tomas Kaberle during the second period of the Maple Leafs' 4-3 shootout win in East Rutherford, N.J., on Friday night.
