Philadelphia Flyers center Brayden Schenn will have the first meeting of the NHL season with Brendan Shanahan for this monstrous hit on Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov:

No penalty was called on the play. I don’t think he’ll receive a suspension for this hit, but he may be the first player fined under the rule of the new CBA which states:

“Permissible fines for on-ice infractions increased to an amount up to 50 percent of the Player’s Paragraph 1 NHL Salary and Bonuses (not including Performance Bonuses) divided by the number of days in the Regular Season and may not exceed $10,000 on a first-time basis, and $15,000 on a second and subsequent time basis (determined in accordance with a rolling 12-month period). All fines above $5,000 are subject to the hearing procedure accorded to Players subject to suspension not exceeding five (5) Games.”

    That’s a perfectly executed body check. He uses his shoulder to hit him in the chest. Its not a charge because he didn’t take too many strides or leave his feet before impact. This should not be disciplined or you might as well make all hits illegal.
