Vancouver Canucks forward facing suspension for slewfoot after being called for intent to injure

Last night in the late game, the Vancouver Canucks took on the San Jose Sharks in what many people assumed would be a boring game, given how well the Canucks have played and how historically bad the Sharks have been.

However, that was the furthest thing from the truth, in fact, near the end of the second period, with Vancouver leading 1-0, forward Nils Hoglander makes one of the most dangerous plays you'll see all season; take a look.


Hoglander and Sharks forward Kevin Labanc appear to meet near the benches before Hoglander forcibly throws Labanc down to the ice. Almost immediately the referees arm goes up in the air.


Hoglander is then given a 5 minute major and a game misconduct for intent to injure and thrown out of the game, as he should've been.

One thing is clear here, Hoglander should and most likely will get a call from the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety.

Now, with the DoPS being as inconsistent as they have been early on in the season, it's anyone's guess how long Hoglander will have to sit out, but I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be the longest suspension to date this season.

Intent to injure and the judo like throw to boot isn't a good look.
