Video: Hanzal with an elbow to the head of Erik Johnson
Martin Hanzal caught Avs’ defenseman Erik Johnson with an elbow to the head early in overtime Tuesday night.
Johnson was reaching on the play and Hanzal connected with the Avs’ blue liner in vulnerable position.
There was no penalty on the play.
Johnson left the game and did not return.
Hanzal could be hearing from NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety, Stephane Quintal, as he has quite the rap sheet.
During the 2012 playoffs Hanzal was suspended one game for a hit on the Kings’ Dustin Brown.
