Gets Penalty For Head Contact After High Hit On Tomas Nosek

  • Joe Thornton receives a 2 minute penalty for head contact after he hits Tomas Nosek high.
  • This has to be suspended, otherwise it’s open season for the rest of the playoffs.
  • Not a good look from Joe Thornton here.
  • Jumbo Joe may be in some hot water after this one.
  • This should at the very minimum be a single game suspension.
  • Maybe more…
  • Assuming Thornton is fined or suspended, it would be the second incident with Vegas in which he received supplemental discipline.
  • In late March, he was fined $2,500 for high-sticking Golden Knights forward Ryan Reaves.

“Honestly, I thought I barely touched him. He came right back. It’s just one of those plays. I think my son hits me like that six times a day, it’s just a weird position he put himself in. That’s all.”
