San Jose’s Marc-Edouard Vlasic sticks the Wild’s Dany Heatley

First off, Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic needs to be suspended for a very long time by the Department of Player Safety for his vicious attack on Wild forward Dany Heatley. There is no way you can justify this attack. Sounds like Heatley could be out of the line-up for a while. Michael Russo does a pretty good job of drawing this up. S/t for the video by Andy Johnson.
Vlasic slashed Heatley across the top of the back. Heatley got up and tried to connect with his stick and missed. Vlasic then two-handed Heatley across the forearm and jumped him. Vlasic got the shirt over top Heatley’s head, lifted him and then violently one-last time drove him down to the ice. That appears to be when Heatley got hurt. He skated to the exit in pain.
