Bad judgement as he probably should have tried to avoid contact if he thought Clutterbuck was vulnerable, but it's hard to change gears that quickly and process several decisions in fractions of a second (don't go high and hit his head, but also don't go too low). That said, as an Oiler fan, I'm happy to see someone finish their check even if it was a little dirty. Hopefully, we see more, but better timed attempts.
That's probably a fair statement hopefully he clears that up in his phone conversation.
