It's a cross check to the shoulders. In the same motion, on the follow through, Del Zotto high stick's Kopecky while he's turned around and knocks off his helmet. Looks like Kopecky thought that was intentional.

Kopecky must have assumed Del Zotto was being dirty and hit him in the head with his stick. Clearly the course of action is not sucker punching him, he should have squared off with an aware Del Zotto and not one looking away.

I'm happy Rupp stood up for Del Zotto. So many times in the past few years i've seen other teams taking liberty with ours. It's good to have some reinforcement.
