(WSCR) In the final minutes of last night’s Predators-Red Wings game, Nashville’s Shea Weber slammed Detroit’s Henrik Zetterberg’s head into the glass.
The two were fighting for the puck when Weber raised his right arm before slamming Zetterberg’s head.
In 1993, Capital Dale Hunter was suspended 21 games for a similar hit on the Islanders’ Pierre Turgeon during the playoffs.
NHL head disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan elected not to suspend Weber, rather to fine him $2,500.
