Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman knocked over linesman Don Henderson during the second period of Wednesday’s game versus the Nashville Predators.

The incident occurred seconds after Wideman took an awkward hit into the boards from Miikka Salomaki.

As the veteran blue liner was slowly skating back to the Calgary bench, and with Henderson focused on the play in front of him as he skated backwards through neutral zone, Wideman ran right into the linesman, sending him hard to the ice.

Wideman appeared to follow through similar to a cross check. There was no call on the play.
