Ryan Lindgren took down Joonas Donskoi with a big hit during Tuesday’s victory vs. the Colorado Avalanche, and although a penalty was not assessed on the play, the league is going to give it another look.

Here’s the hit in question.

Following the hit, Nazem Kadri went after Lindgren, and was assessed a two minute penalty for instigating, a five minute major for fighting, and a 10 minute misconduct.

Lindgren was visibly bloody after the scrap, and he did not return to the game. Donskoi missed the remainder of the game as well. It will be interesting to see how the department rules on the hit considering it was one that’s right on the borderline, and one that wasn’t penalized during the game.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
