Video: Flames’ McGrattan tossed from game for hit on Canucks’ Alberts

5 Comments

Calgary Flames enforcer Brian McGrattan received two five-minute majors (one for fighting, one for elbowing) and a 10-minute misconduct after delivering a high hit on Vancouver Canucks defenseman Andrew Alberts and then immediately dropping the gloves with Tom Sestito.

Here’s video of the hit (H/T to Kukla’s Korner):

There hasn’t been an update on Alberts as of this writing. He hasn’t returned to the game.

Update: John Tortorella says Alberts is day-to-day and that’s that. The Canucks ended up winning 1-0 tonight.

Despite being one of the NHL’s most fearsome fighters, McGrattan hasn’t been suspended at this level. That may change thanks to this incident.
