Connor McDavid to Face Punishment For 'Dirty' Hit?

Published March 31, 2023 at 9:23

During Connor McDavid's game against the Los Angeles Kings last night, a major controversial highlight occurred.

The incident happened early in the first period when McDavid swiftly entered the Los Angeles zone and charged directly at defenseman Mikey Anderson, who had his head turned away from McDavid and was unaware of his incoming attack.

McDavid finished the check, causing Anderson to lay on the ice for a few minutes, trying to recover from the hit. The officials then huddled and gave McDavid a two-minute boarding call.

This decision sparked a firestorm of comments on Twitter, with many Los Angeles Kings fans expressing their frustration with the lack of time given to the call. The incident has also ignited a debate about whether McDavid's check was legal or not.
