Should Gustav Nyquist be suspended for his high-stick on Spurgeon?

Watch as Gustav Nyquist viciously high sticks Jared Spurgeon.

Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist retaliated with an ugly looking high-stick to the face of Jared Spurgeon on Sunday.

Nyquist was upset after being shoved with a cross-check by Spurgeon and responded by jamming his stick blade up into the face of the Minnesota Wild defenceman.

The refs assessed Nyquist with a double-minor for high-sticking, though it’s quite possible the league’s department of player safety will assess further discipline for the reckless play.

The 27-year-old Swede has never been suspended in his NHL career.
