Dirty Hit on Blue Jackets' Star

At the conclusion of last night's Flames-Blue Jackets game, Rasmus Andersson delivered an unnecessary and dirty hit on Blue Jackets star Patrik Laine, which is likely to result in a suspension.

In the waning seconds of the Flames-Blue Jackets matchup, Rasmus Andersson executed a wholly unnecessary and dirty hit to the head of Patrik Laine, while also leaving his feet during the incident. This action was entirely uncalled for, as it transpired in the neutral zone during the game's last moments, with the Blue Jackets already holding a two-goal lead.


Suspension Incoming for Andersson?



Here's how the hit went down:

100% a suspension and it better be a lengthy one.

Absolute clown behavior from Rasmus Andersson at the buzzer. Jumps into a headshot. Intent to injure, no doubt about it. #CBJ


It's safe to say that if Player Safety doesn't handle this situation appropriately, there will be a strong outcry from both players and fans.
