L.A. Kings captain Dustin Brown was called for charging after a high hit on Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray on Thursday night.

Brown, known as a heavy hitter, appeared to make contact with Murray’s head on the hit, just as the young blue liner was falling forward as he reached forward to play the puck. Murray was almost on his knees at the point of contact.

Brown received only a minor penalty on the play, which occurred in the second period. Now, will this hit warrant supplemental discipline from the league?
