Lehkonen fell in the most awkward of ways. Looks like he was fully conscious when he was hit, but fell on his back - thus striking the back of his head on the ice.
Blatantly late, blindsided/vulnerable position, shoulder to the head as a principle point of contact. Hitting the ice didn't help but that's an incredibly dirty hit to lay on a 17 year old kid who weighs roughly 30lbs less than Ruutu, head hitting the ice or not. Disgusting, pisses me off just watching it.
