So the NHL is going to have a hearing on Tuesday to review the case of Dennis Wideman cross-checking linesman Don Henderson....
My first reaction: it should've been Dan O'Halloran instead.
My second reaction: damn!
Refs are completely untouchable, as they should be, the standard suspension for hitting a ref is higher than hitting a player on the other team. Which is why this hit is as big of a deal as it is.
In NHL it very much depends. I remember an accident when a certain Penguin cross-checked referee and got away with it just fine.
