The main thing is that he was in position to flatten the guy. Only thing he has to change is his form so that suspension doesn't happen. For example, turning around with his back like Kronwall/Subban do or just keeping his arms/elbows tucked in.
Another thing to note is the player he hit is 5'11" and skating with his head down. That hit probably doesn't happen at the NHL level because players are usually a little taller (average forward is 6'1" iirc) and the ones who aren't know to keep their head up so they don't get flattened.
