New York Rangers forward John Moore was given a five-minute major and a match penalty for this hit on Montreal Canadians forward Dale Weise. I would be very shocked if Moore is playing in the next game. The hit was way late, and very high.
According to numerous beat writers on twitter, Moore will have a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety tomorrow. I expect that Moore will be suspended by the NHL. Brandon Prust was suspended for two games for almost the same hit.
John Moore will have a hearing Wednesday with for an illegal check to the head of Dale Weise, @NHLPlayerSafety announces.
