He was going for a decent hit on their defenceman which is what any player should be doing on the forecheck to make their defence start coughing up the puck from being scared. Brodin had so much time to look up and see him but either chose not to or thought Hall wouldn't try to hit him. Brodin was going for the puck and Hall hit him from the side into the boards. Even if Hall's shoulder hit him in the head that is still a clean hit. Hall was all shoulder so unless he hit him from behind, no matter what it is a clean hit. Brodin clearly pokes at the puck which was just a silly play because he made himself vulnerable and Hall took advantage to try and send a message. Great, clean hockey hit. If Brodin wasn't injured it would have been a great hit and still is although unfortunately Brodin's collarbone broke.
