SAINT JOHN – It looks like the Saint John Sea Dogs will have to deal with some controversy this week as they prepare for the President’s Cup final.
Sea Dogs captain Jonathan Huberdeau nailed Chicoutimi Sagueneens forward Charles Hudon from behind just 18 seconds after the opening faceoff. Huberdeau wasn’t even given a penalty while Hudon had to be helped off the ice and to the dressing room. He did not return.
Here’s video from Chris Phillips of HockeyFights.com.
For some reason the Sags posted this video on their Facebook page. The comments are what you’d expect.
Neate Sager of Buzzing The Net has his take on the situation here.
Like we’ve said before, this league is so inconsistent with suspensions it’s hard to say if Huberdeau gets any games for this hit. We’ll see.
