What do you think of Boychuk’s hit on Raymond?
- Updated: June 14, 2011
Johnny Boychuk takes Mason Raymond awkwardly into the boards early in last nights game. Raymond didn’t return and was taken to hospital.
Jason Botchford via twitter: The refs told the Canucks that no penalty was called because Raymond lost an edge.
Nick Kypreos via twitter: Kypreos is told that the NHL will not further review the hit. Early speculation is that Raymond will be out 4-6 months with a back/hip injury.
Update: Dan Murphy via twitter: A source close to the Raymond family is saying that he suffered a fractured vertebrae.
What do you think of the hit? Suspendable? (I think going forward, if you’re going to leave a comment for ‘suspendable’ questions, you should include if you are a fan of one of the teams involved, or if you are impartial. You obviously don’t have to if you don’t want to.)
