Late in Thursday’s game against Philadelphia, Dan Catenacci was fighting for the puck when Radko Gudas skated over and delivered a brutal hit. Catenacci was able to skate off under his own power, but was immediately sent to go through the concussion protocol. Gudas received a five minute charging penalty, and then the major for fighting.
Here’s a look at the hit:
“The guy’s an idiot. He’s dirty, goes after a rookie, goes right for his head. He’s an idiot that’s all I can say.” – Marcus Foligno
“I think there’s no question it’s head hit. I know the league will look at that hit and deal with it.” – Dan Bylsma
However, Gudas will not receive supplemental discipline for his hit on Catenacci. No suspension coming for him.
Jake McCabe said he believes his suspension has been rescinded.
Do you think Gudas deserved a suspension? Or was it a clean hit?
