It is a freak accident that the timing is exactly at the turnbuckle of the rink.

It would be no different if a player hits someone along the glass and the glass shatters causing injury. The turnbuckle is what caused the concussion, not the hit.

Watch the Johnson's hit on Smyth. No suspension given.

Pushing someone's head into the glass/boards at that speed with his size would have probably caused an injury too. The turnbuckle just made it worse. IT WAS A HEAD SHOT REGARDLESS!
