Anywhere else this would be assault, but hockey has it"s own laws.

Not just a 5 minute major, it`s a game misconduct and pretty much a guaranteed suspension.

That looked suspiciously like a felony aggravated battery to me.

If something happens during a game like this, and is brutal enough, it can become an assault charge.

Case in point: Marty McSorley was found guilty of assault for this slash on Donald Brashear at the end of a game in 2000.

I can all but guarantee whatever league that was came down on him hard. Suspension would be the least of his worries.

I think the comic Pearls Before Swine summed it up nicely (can`t find the actual strip): "It`s like boxing where they take occasional breaks for ice skating, I think it could be popular.".

I haven`t cared much about hockey ever, but isn`t that a foul? It`s "high-sticking."
