Los Angeles Kings forward Tanner Pearson received a game misconduct for an illegal check to the head of Edmonton Oilers defenseman Brandon Davidson on Sunday.

Reactions range from describing the check as “high and a touch late” to far more critical stances.

It’s too early to know for sure if Davidson is injured, but the Oilers are taking a look at him, according to the Edmonton Journal’s Jim Matheson. He was unable to return to the game.

Pearson hasn’t been suspended during his NHL career.
