You realize there was less than 1 second from the time the puck left Pettersson's stick until the hit right?

Late hit, don't get me wrong, and I think the 3 games for Jenner is appropriate given the injury to the player and his past suspension history. But that doesn't change the fact that crosschecking someone in the teeth is definitely dirtier than throwing a bodycheck a bit too late.
