Should Austin Watson be suspended for hit on Brian Dumoulin?

Watch as Nashville Predators forward Austin Watson is given a five minute boarding penalty for a hit on Brian Dumoulin of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Nashville Predators forward Austin Watson could be hearing from the league following Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Watson was issued a five minute major boarding penalty early in the game for a hit to the head on Penguins defenceman Brian Dumoulin. Dumoulin’s head appeared to snap back before slamming into the glass as a result of the hit.

The Penguins blueliner was visibly shaken after the hit but left the game under his own power. He went to the dressing room, but would later return.
