Wednesday: Calvin de Haan is not likely to face any supplemental discipline for the head, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie. While there was definite contact with Drouin’s head, it was “apparently ruled ’unavoidable'” for de Haan.
Tuesday: The Tampa Bay Lightning tweeted that Jonathan Drouin would not return to the game after taking a hit to the head from Calvin de Haan in the first period. Video of the hit was here via SBNation, and both Erik Eriendsson and Renaud Lavoie confirmed Drouin’s inability to return.
From video, it appeared that Drouin took either a shoulder or elbow, but several outlets reported it was an elbow to the head. Teammate Ryan Callahan rushed in and dropped the gloves with de Haan immediately following the hit. The offending de Haan received a major for fighting and an extra major for interference according to the Hockey News’ Jared Clinton. Darren Dreger also tweets that the league will look at the hit.
Drouin has 5 points (2-3) in nine games this season.
