LSSU hockey player suspended for hit on Hunwick

I just saw this pop up on twitter. Andrew Perrault was suspended for one game for "delivering an illegal hit to the head of [Hunwick]" at the "19:08 mark of the second period".

I had thought Hunwick was out because he took a slapshot to the helmet but maybe this added to it too. Did anyone see this live?

But of course the refs neglected to call something on the ice...  I know Michigan's PP isn't exactly good this year, but even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while and we could have used those points.

And I do remember thinking during the first two periods on Friday that LSSU was targeting Hunwick quite a bit and taking every opportunity to run him.  I don't know if they were trying to get a reaction ala NMU from him, or were trying to knock him out because he's tiny, or if it "just happened" but I did not like that.

Well, he took a shot to the mask.  I highly doubt the guy who took the shot (which was from the blue line) was aiming for Hunwick's mask, but I was pissed that the refs didn't call the play dead immediately (they got another shot off).
