Minnesota Wild Player Faces Likely Suspension Following Dirty Hit And Ejection

When the Minnesota Wild and Dallas Stars play there is always animosity in the air. The game on Sunday night was no different as 45 minutes in penalties were given out.

The game also included a fight, a lop-sided score, and a dirty hit that cause an injury as well as an ejection.

The Sunday night Central game was full of everything



The fight in the game occurred at 13:37 of the first period and was between Connor Dewar and Craig Smith, which is hardly the two individuals that would be expected to drop the gloves in a tilt between these two teams.


There were 10 minor penalties given out in the game, five against the Stars and five against the Wild. The advantage came from the five minutes taken by Duhaime late in the second period.

Dallas was five for eight on the powerplays, and Minnesota only managed to capitalize on one powerplay out of five.

The hit that will likely result in a suspension



At 18:14 of the second period Brandon Duhaime hit Thomas Harley from behind and was given a fine minute major for boarding and also a game misconduct.



Harley remained on the ground for some time and never played in the remainder of the game. This hit will likely serve Duhaime with a call from the NHL's Department of Player Safety. He had already escaped one suspension before and he likely will not this time.
