Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Kesler was penalized for an illegal check to the head of Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tyler Myers late in the first period of Game 2.

Myers, who stands 6’8″ tall compared to Kesler at 6’2″ tall, was bending over to play the puck when Kesler caught him with the hit, which resulted in a minor penalty. Myers remained in the game for Winnipeg.

In January, Kesler escaped without a disciplinary hearing while drawing the ire of Vancouver fans and his former Canucks teammates for a questionable hit on Derek Dorsett.
