You Make The Call: Smith on Smith
In the third period of last nights preseason tilt between Chicago and Detroit, Ben Smith of the blackhawks was hit by Brendan Smith of the Red Wings.
As Ben Smith attempted to make a move with the puck to the inside of the ice, Brendan Smith stepped into the puck carrier, made contact with the head, and knocked him unconscious.
Ben Smith was unable to stand after the hit and looked as if he was unaware of his surroundings as he was being examined by medical personnel.
So, welcome back the “you make the call” segment. Post in the comments what your discipline, if any, would be for this hit.
