Last night during game two of the Ranger vs. Hurricanes series, Jacob Trouba attempted to hit Martin Necas' head causing outrage around the NHL.

Jacob Trouba has been trending all day for this play last night during the New York Rangers game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
The replay of the hit shows Trouba extending his elbow in an attempt to hit Necas' head but Necas was able to dodge the hit from Trouba.
Today, the NHL decided it would not take action against Trouba despite it clearly being an attempt to injure one of the Hurricanes' top players.
If Jacob Trouba had made contact with Martin Necas' head, he would likely have been suspended for the rest of the playoffs.

The NHL Department of Player Safety has chosen not to discipline him at all, however, as the 5PM deadline has passed.

According to the NHL rule book, Trouba certainly could have been suspended for the play.
Per NHL rules: 'A match penalty shall be imposed on any player who deliberately attempts to injure or who deliberately injures an opponent in any manner.'

Not a minor or major. A match penalty. It's actually DEFINED by INTENT, not outcome.

And nothing.

Unfortunately, it seems like we will have to wait longer till Jacob Trouba gets rightfully suspended for his head-hunting antics.
