I've never seen that called when it wasn't on a breakaway, and I've never seen it called when there's strong evidence for it not being intentional. It would be like if a baseball player lost grip on the barrell of the bad and it flew into the opposing dugout, and the umpire tossing that player for "intentionally firing bat into other player".
I haven't seen a replay yet, but it looked pretty clear to me that Thomson threw his stick. I'm a Kitchener fan.
