That is a dangerous play and directly resulted in an injury. Intent should only matter after it has been decided he will be disciplined, then it comes into play one how severe his discipline should be.
Not exactly, those types of plays happen multiple times a game. We don't need to be suspending players for accidental contact. He probably deserved a penalty, similar to when a players stick rides up and clips someone. That's about as far as it should go.
