At any rate, it was a sickening display of carelessness on the part of Danton.
This rule has been in effect for several years. My guess is 3-5 years. They used to hand out game misconducts too easily and it was softened to allow for careless use of the stick resulting in 4 min and deliberate intent to injure resulting in 5 min and a game.
