Winnipeg Jets defenseman Josh Morrissey is scheduled to have a phone meeting with the Department of Player Safety on Thursday, regarding his cross-check on Minnesota Wild’s Eric Staal during their playoff game on Tuesday night.
In a play that stirred up a lot of chatter on social media, Morrissey appeared to cross-check Staal in the face during a penalty kill in the first period.
No penalty was called and Staal immediately went to the bench.
Minnesota head coach Bruce Boudreau spoke with the media after the game and claimed that the non-call cost the Wild the game.
Boudreau believes Morrissey should have been thrown out of the game.
