Courtesy of NHL [1].com, here’s the video of NHL [2] disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan breaking down Milan Lucic [3]‘s one-game suspension. Shanahan says that the fact that Lucic is a repeat offender influenced the decision.

“While this hit is not particularly egregious, it is illegal,” Shanahan said of Lucic’s hit from behind on Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo. “However, the overriding factor in elevating this check from behind from a penalty on the ice to a suspension is his history of similar infractions, warnings and a fine.
