The incident happened late in the second period as the two were battling for a puck along the boards. Hoglander appears to slew foot Labanc, who falls to the ice. Appearing injured, Labanc headed to the dressing room.
Hoglander was initially assessed a five-minute major and, upon video review, the call was upheld. This is Hoglander’s first match penalty in his career.
The 22-year-old has five goals and seven points in 16 appearances for the Canucks this season.
