The incident occurred at 10:08 of the second period during Sunday's game between the Canucks and Maple Leafs. After forcing a turnover near centre ice, Hyman carried the puck toward the Canucks' zone. Edler skated forward to challenge Hyman and, when Hyman made a move to evade the hit, Edler stuck his right leg out resulting in a direct knee-on-knee collision between the players.
Hyman hobbled the dressing room and didn’t return for the final 30 minutes of the game, which the Canucks won 3-2 in overtime.
Hyman, who had previously undergone surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee, will miss at least two weeks with a sprained right MCL.
Based on Edler's average annual salary, he will forfeit $103,444.28 due to the suspension.
