Colorado Avalanche winger Cody McLeod said he doesn’t want to hurt anyone, but he made another questionable hit on Friday, as he was ejected for boarding Minnesota Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin.
Video of the hit will be added when it’s available, but in the meantime, CJ Fogler uploaded a GIF of the check:
McLeod, 29, already received a five-game suspension for boarding this season:
Brodin, 20, missed three contests with a cheekbone injury, so that’s on the list of concerns for the talented sophomore blueliner. McLeod received a 10-minute game misconduct and five-minute major penalty for boarding.
Update: Brodin was able to return to the contest on Friday.
