As far as a callup, I think Winchester will be called up. He's a nhl vet and probably signed for this exact reason.
I've gone back and watched it several times (I LOVE Gamecenter Live for things like this...) It doesn't look like a slewfoot to me. Basically: The puck comes around the back of the boards, Hornqvist can't reach it so starts skating after it, Getzlaf is coming in from his left, throws a shoulder check but kind of bounces off Hornqvist and begins to fall down, Hornqvist is still skating forward as Getzlaf falls down and brings down Hornqvist with him, in a very awkward way for Hornqvist to fall down and I REALLY hope that it's not a serious injury.
I HATE the Ducks but this didn't look intentional to me.
