VIDEO: Taylor Hall Ejected After Hit On Minnesota’s Cal Clutterbuck

On top of losing another home game, this happens.

The Oilers were down 3-1 late in the third period when this happened.

The puck got tangled in Cal Clutterbuck’s skates when Taylor Hall met him near centre ice.  Hall unloaded a hit that set Clutterbuck to the ice immediately.

From this vantage point, it’s at least some knee.  There was some hip, but there’s a lot of knee to go with it. Couple it with the fact that it’s a full second since Clutterbuck had touched the puck, and this doesn’t look good for Taylor Hall.

Hall received a five minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct.  Cal Clutterbuck was helped from the ice and put on a stretcher upon reaching the tunnel.

Expect a disciplinary hearing in the not-too-distant future. Hall doesn’t have a supplemental discipline history, but I can’t imagine Brendan Shanahan letting this go on a fine.

If I had to guess, I’d say a few games are coming Taylor Hall’s way.
