Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn wrecked New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov on Tuesday night, and now Schenn will be facing a disciplinary hearing from Brendan Shanahan, the first of the season.
If Schenn is disciplined, it will be because he left his feet before making the hit on Volchenkov. But did he actually leave his feet before making the hit, or did he leave them after? That’s what Shanahan will have to make a decision on. You can view the video at the end of the post and judge for yourself.
The hit was huge, but it didn’t seem to hurt Volchenkov – he continued to play and the Devils ended up beating the Flyers 3-0. After the hit, Schenn actually continued to get physical with the Devils – he fought Devils forward Steve Bernier with less than a minute left in the game.
Here’s the video of the hit:
