Jack Johnson suspended 3 games for illegal check to the head


Recommended Posts

It seemed like we might get a better start to this season with less suspensions, but we've had enough lately to make up for it.

It's a hit where Johnson comes across the front of Tlusty instead of squarely through the center of his body, and he elevates into the hit and clips the head. They seem to be using the 'elevate' reasoning more than in the past, where it'd typically mostly be for charging in the past.

well charging was if you left your feet... these hits even like burrows guys are changing their pad levels and going high not leaving their feet.
