Video: Stars’ Ritchie with high hit on Flames’ Monahan
The Calgary Flames’ breakout line of Johnny Gaudreau, Jiri Hudler and Sean Monahan keep scoring and scoring this season. You never know when an ill-fated hit could mess that up, though.
Monday produced a scare in the form of this highly questionable hit by rugged Dallas Stars forward Brett Ritchie, which only produced a two-minute minor:
Puck Daddy’s Greg Wyshynski labels the hit as “predatory.” Is that accurate?
On the bright side, it seems like Monahan is OK.
