During the Florida Panthers and Minnesota Wild game, Aaron Ekblad received a penalty for a dirty hit to the head of Minnesota Wild winger Marcus Johansson.

The incident happened with only 1:12 left in the second period, with the Wild leading 4-2.

As you can see, Ekblad uses his elbow and leads the hit into Johansson's head as a point of contact.




Ekblad was assessed a minor penalty for elbowing Johansson, but it's unknown if there will be any further disciplinary action.

Seems like the referees are drunk again on the ice.
