Crosby May Be Worthy Of Suspension For Hit on Wild Rookie

Crosby May Be Worthy Of Suspension For Hit on Wild Rookie

BY DAVE C.    FEBRUARY 11, 2024  (3:34 PM)
During the game vs the Wild yesterday, Sidney Crosby layed a dirty hit on Wild rookie and Calder favourite Brock Faber. It was a hit that caught fans attention and some are even demanding a suspension.

Crosby due for a suspension? Or just got away with it?



During the intense match, Sidney Crosby's dirty play against Brock Faber, a rookie on the rise for the Wild, caught attention. Crosby was viewed wrapping his hands around Faber's head, with his stick meeting with Faber's face, the play went uncalled which can potentially be superstar treatment by the officials.




Crosby might get away with it considering his status across the league and being one of the top guys, but if it was someone with a less valuable reputation, it may not have been the case.

The hit can be a case viewed by the NHL DOPS if it gathers more attention, which can lead to a suspension or at the minimum a fine.

Faber on top of list for Calder



You can make a case that the NHL should defend their young elite superstars, like Brock Faber who has 31 points this season as a defenseman and is one of the presumed Calder favorites, interesting case here and excited to find out what the verdict may be.
