I tend to agree with the other guy.
He likely missed his check, thought he'd throw the guy an elbow (Howe did it all the time).
It wasn't a flying elbow. He got it up. As dumb as the play is, I don't think there was really intent to injure, or even to get him unhigh.

Unfortunately given his status as a "tough guy"/4th liner, the stupidity of the play, and the crackdown on headshots, he deserves 3-5 games.

found this quote.

Deveaux said outside the Rangers' locker room after the game that the play had happened quickly and he simply reacted when Fleischmann "tried to cut in and kind of duck down."

"I definitely got him, but it was completely unintentional," Deveaux said.
