Is Byfuglien’s boarding hit on Pominville suspension-worthy?


James OBrien

The Winnipeg Jets flexed their offensive muscles at times on Sunday, and Dustin Byfuglien is a big part of that.

The over-sized blueliner has been using his size for no good quite often lately (ask Jay Bouwmeester), especially if you look back to the later stages of last season.

We saw both sides of Byfuglien in Winnipeg’s 5-4 win against the Minnesota Wild, as he delivered a questionable boarding hit on Jason Pominville.

It only received a minor penalty, yet it might be suspension material.

In other news from the game, it seems like Devan Dubnyk is sore, but not necessarily injured.
