Glad to see the player return in the third althought he probably should have taken the rest of he night off. Tough boy! Anyone else see this and do you think it should have been a penalty?
I concur that this was a dangerous hit and was very surprised that the referees did not make any call. Mr. Carroll should have been escorted off the ice. Nor did the referees call Mr. Caroll for running the Kemptville goalie. In today's game, both Mr. Kiristis & Mr. Walters bumped Mr. Carroll after the whistle had sounded when earlier he had rocked a Braves player.

IMO, often referees are opting for the boarding call as opposed to the Check from Behind call. As it is different referees in different game situations, I suspect that the league general managers have stipulated to the referees to back away from having players tossed from a game.
