9 Comments

Phoenix Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal might have a conservation with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan in the near future.

In the dying minutes of Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Dallas, Hanzal knocked Stars forward Jamie Benn out of the game after Benn had already gotten rid of the puck.

You can see the NHL Network analyze the hit below:

Hanzal was not penalized and Benn left the game.

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan couldn’t immediately provide an update on Benn’s health, according to the Dallas Stars Inside Edge.

When asked about the hit, Gulutzan said, “I thought it was late, but that’s not for me to decide.”
