MacDonald summoned by NHL Player Safety after brutal headshot on Ryan Hartman

He's gotta be looking at a suspension here, right? One game?

In case you missed it last night, Colorado Avalanche defenceman Jacob MacDonald went unpenalized for a brutal headshot on Minnesota Wild forward Ryan Hartman.

Here's the play in question, be sure to watch the background of the video:



Well, NHL Player Safety has now made sure that MacDonald won't get off scot free. He's been summoned by the league to have a hearing later today.

Check it out:


MacDonald has no previous supplemental discipline history, but I have to figure that he'll be looking at a game suspension for this hit. It's late, it's to the head and MacDonald clearly goes out of his way to pop his shoulder up and into the hit. Textbook headshot.
