In one of the odd plays of the day, Slovakia's defenseman Richard Buri hits Canada's defensema Dougie Hamilton. Buri was only given a two minute minor on the play. Team Canada scored on the ensuing power play with a goal by Morgan Rielly assisting on the goal were Mark Schiefele and Oliers star Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
Hamilton is a Boston Bruins first round draft choice who was picked ninth overall during the 2011 NHL entry draft. Hamilton plays for the Niagara Ice Dogs of the Ontario Hockey League.
Canada Anthony Camara recieved a five minute major and a game misconduct for charging for his hit on Slovakia's Patrik Luza. The IIHF will not have a hearing for Camara.
My question to hockey fans is, do you think this hit warrants any supplemental discipline? I think the right call was made for this hit. I looking at the hit, I do think that charging is a good call, Camara kept his elbows down and didn't hit Luza in the head.
