Lemieux's Controversial Hit on McCann Raises Eyebrows

In the heated game between the Carolina Hurricanes and Seattle Kraken, McCann found himself down on the ice. As he attempted to get up, Lemieux took the opportunity to deliver a solid hit.

McCann wasn't in possession of the puck and was in a precarious position, but Lemieux still made the move, which is now creating quite a buzz.


Following the hit, Lemieux was handed a minor penalty for roughing. In a surprising twist, rookie Tye Kartye stepped up and confronted Lemieux for his actions.

"Some leadership from the rookie. After scoring his first NHL goal, Tye Kartye stands up for his teammate and makes Brendan Lemieux answer for his hit on Jared McCann."


Will Lemieux Face Further Repercussions for the Hit on McCann?

Receiving only a two-minute penalty indicates that the officials didn't view the hit as a headshot, thus no immediate suspension.

Yet, with Lemieux's history of suspensions tied to perilous hits, his status as a repeat offender may catch the NHL's attention.

Do you think Lemieux should be suspended by the NHL?
