Watch: Blue Jackets’ Dubinsky ejected after running Kings’ Scuderi from behind

Feb 5, 2013, 10:04 PM EST

Columbus Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky could be facing disciplinary action from the league after he drilled L.A. Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi from behind, face first into the end boards.

The incident took place in the second period of Tuesday’s Kings-Blue Jackets game.

Scuderi was going back for the puck and had his back turned to Dubinsky, who went in to finish his check. In doing so, he drove Scuderi’s head into the boards.

Dubinsky was given a major penalty for boarding and was ejected from the game, but not before he and Kings center Mike Richards dropped the gloves.

This wasn’t the first time Dubinsky and Richards have fought.

“Well, I didn’t think I was going to have to fight (Brandon) Dubinsky anymore. I’ve already fought him five times. I can’t get rid of this guy,” Richards told Mayor’s Manor in July of 2011.

Scuderi returned to the game, sporting a wicked shiner around his right eye.

The Kings won 4-2. Richards completed the Gordie Howe hat trick (a fight, goal and assist all in one game) with a goal in the third period. It was also his first goal of the season.
