Didn't Brendan Smith get suspended against the Black Hawks in the preseason 2 years ago?

They should suspend the Blackhawks for being preseason instigators of young, jumpy Red Wings.

The annoying thing about the article....what relevance is it that Chicago won the game?

 

 

Detroit Red Wings left wing Teemu Pulkkinen will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety at the League's New York office Thursday for a boarding incident during a preseason game against the Chicago Blackhawks Tuesday at United Center.

 

Pulkkinen was offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.

 

At 2:16 of the first period, Pulkkinen was assessed a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct for a hit on Chicago defenseman Michael Kostka.

 

Kostka left the game and did not return.

 

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: boarding. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.

 

Chicago won the game, 2-0.

Probably suspendable, but who cares. He wont be in the league this year anyway.

 

I think the commentary sold it a little worse than it was. I highly doubt he made a "B-line from the bench" to hit him from behind. Looked like another play of the defenseman turning his back to head back behind the net.

his right shoulder collides with the numbers of the back of his jersey. the side would be if he hit him on the side of his shoulder. The second angle is where you can see it properly.

Would the suspension count in ahl or minor leagues as well

I always get a chuckle after hits like that, the guy is laying on the ice so everyone should get right up on him and start pushing and shoving each other. Classic!

Not sure. Looks more to the side not directly on the numbers

From what I saw the blackhawk player saw Pulkkinen coming and turned his back to him as he came in. Pulkkinen was straddling and not taking strides. 

 

I would like to see dangerous hits out of the game, but the player being hit need to take some responsibility. 

 

2 minutes boarding. but since he is a young player (like Smith back in the day) the league is going to make an example and give him much more then that. 


"When the cast comes off, I ask my doctor, 'Have I recovered so I can play the violin?' The doctor says, 'But of course you can play the violin.' I say, 'Wow, this is great. Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand

Good freeze frame. It's close you could argue it either way.

A silly hit to make. Sort of thing you'd expect from an inexperienced player.

 

That said, I wouldn't have given it more than 2 minutes myself. It was pretty soft hit. Looked a lot worse than it was.

He should be suspended, in part because it's pre-season.

 

Kostka's upper body may have been turned so it wasn't square in the numbers, but Kostka was essentially facing the boards the whole time he made the move behind the net, with his back to Pulkkinen.  What decides it for me is there's really no way this results in a good hit based on where Kostka was in relation to the boards and the angle Pulkkinen was coming from.  Any result sends Kostka headfirst into the boards. 

 

Stupid play and he should've let up.  That being said I don't think it warrants 5 or more games.  A couple preseason games would be enough.

 

I don't see why they'd need an in person hearing, unless they're going to suspend him for the remainder of the pre-season to make an empty gesture about punishing bad hits.
