It was, but the second criteria is whether or not the head was actually targeted. It looked like Okposo was trying to knock Bogo off the puck and just got his hands a bit too high.

Not a suspension-worthy hit IMO, although I've noticed they rarely call 2 minute minors for checks to the head, which is what this should've been.
