National Hockey League rules prohibit "a lateral, back-pressure or blind-side hit to an opponent where the head is targeted and/or the principal point of contact." (remember Doan's suspension)

While I don't believe he intentionally targeted the head, Hanzal's right shoulder clearly makes contact with Benn's noggin.
Sometimes it's good to be wrong.
