NHL Controversy: Discipline ruled Lauzon's Hit on Kurashev



After the big showdown between the Nashville Predators and the Chicago Blackhawks, the NHL made a controversial call about Jeremy Lauzon's hit on young Blackhawks player Philipp Kurashev.

The league's Player Safety department has decided that Lauzon won't face any consequences for the hit, and this has stirred up discussions among fans and experts.

The incident, where Lauzon made what some folks called a cheap move, got everyone talking right away. Nick Foligno from the Blackhawks, who doesn't like seeing his teammates in danger, didn't waste a second he threw off his gloves and went straight at Lauzon.




Even though the NHL Player Safety decided to discipline Lauzon, he will sure face a tough game when the Blackhawks face off against the Predators next, which is on April 12th.

As fans wait to see what happens next, one thing's for sure this decision is making waves. The Blackhawks are a team that stands up for each other, but the NHL's call on this hit is causing a lot of talk and leaving fans curious about how the league makes these choices.
