We all know that hockey comes with aggressive fighting, violence and often times blood.
But Wednesday night’s game between the Nashville Predators and Detroit Red Wings got attention after Predators captain Shea Weber forcefully slammed Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg’s head into the glass wall.
At the end of the 3-2 loss to the Predators, Zetterberg checked Weber, who brutally responded by slamming Zetterberg’s head into the glass panel not once, but twice.
After review, NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety and Hockey Operations Brendan Shanahan fined Weber $2,500 for the incident.
“This play and the fine that addressed it will be significant factors in assessing any incidents involving Shea Weber throughout the remainder of the playoffs,” Shanahan told NHL.com.
