Does Martin Hanzalís hit on Jamie Benn deserve supplemental discipline? (VIDEO) (Puck
Late in the third period of Saturday night's 2-1 Phoenix Coyotes win over the Dallas Stars, Jamie Benn took a hit from Martin Hanzal that may require some supplemental discipline from the NHL.
Reminds you a lot of the Mike Richards on David Booth hit, doesn't it?
The hit is late and Hanzal does make contact with Benn's head. It's tough, however, to determine the principle point of contact is Benn's head or chest. Hanzal was not penalized on the play and Benn did not return for the final 1:27 of the game.
After the game, Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan didn't like the hit. "I thought it was late but it's not for me to decide," he said via the AP.
The Stars have not released any up on Benn just yet.
Phoenix and Dallas do not play again until Tuesday.
