Edmonton Oilers star forward Leon Draisaitl may face possible suspension after hit on Sasha Barkov in game two of the Stanley Cup Finals.

In the final minutes of the game, Oilers superstar Leon Draisaitl was assessed a two minute penalty for a high hit on Panthers captain Aleksander Barkov, a hit that forced Barkov from the game.

This has to be worth at least a game suspension for Draisaitl. That's some textbook intent to injure.




Many fans across the league are demanding that NHL player safety shall interfere and hand the German sensation a suspension.



Panthers head coach Paul Maurice clearly wasn't happy about it, however he admitted that he had no ruling or decision on the matter so it doesn't change anything.



The Panthers ended up defeating the Oilers with a convincing 4-1 victory. The Oilers have scored just one goal in the first two games of this series.

Interesting to see what will happen now moving forward in this tenacious series between the Edmonton Oilers and the Florida Panthers.

Player safety reaches a verdict on Draisaitl according the Friedman



This is going to be the only supplemental discipline from Game 2
