It was announced as a 5 min major for fighting and a game misconduct, but I did see the attempt/intent to injure match penalty on the scoresheet after the game. Looking at the AHL Rulebook, it's an automatic $200 fine and review from the Commissioner's office. Probably don't see too many attempt/intent to injure match penalties go without a suspension.
Ha, ok now I get the Superman reference. Thanks for the scoop.

BTW, $200 fine? Sure drops down a bit from the NHL. Speeding tickets cost more than that.
