This hit is no different than most every hit Zac Rinaldo throws.
If Rinaldo threw that hit he'd be suspended for 30+ games and ripped apart by every single member of the media. Watch his left skate prior to making contact, you cannot see it clearly in that gif as Keith obstructs the view, but he does leave his feet and clearly targets the head. It doesn't matter whether its an elbow or not.
