“Nothing scheduled at the moment” was the response we got from the NHL with regards to a possible disciplinary hearing for Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg after his hit on Stars forward Vernon Fiddler last night in Boston.
Even B’s play-by-play man Jack Edwards, not exactly the most ardent critic of the team, noted that Seidenberg “caught some head” on the hit.
But was it suspension-worthy?
So perhaps the NHL felt Seidenberg “attempted to hit squarely through” Fiddler’s body. If the league did indeed see it that way, we wouldn’t necessarily disagree.
