Read 60.1 in the rules. Contact on a normal follow through is not high sticking
60.1 High-sticking - A “high stick” is one which is carried above the height of the opponent’s shoulders. Players and goalkeepers must be in control and responsible for their stick. However, a player or
goalkeeper is permitted accidental contact on an opponent if the act is committed as a normal windup or follow through of a shooting motion.A wild swing at a bouncing puck would not be considered a normal windup or follow through and any contact to an opponent above the height of the shoulders shall be penalized accordingly.
No penalty applied in that situation
Do I feel sorry for Thomas and Julien? No. Has nothing to do with them being great guys or not.
