As we all can see the footage, this action is undeniably evident.

Jacob Trouba from the New York Rangers will probably receive a communication from the NHL's Player Safety Department following a forceful swing of his stick to Trent Frederic's head from the Boston Bruins, connecting with a significant impact. Check out the footage


How Frederic managed to stay on his feet after that incident? Online, some speculate that Trouba was attempting to retrieve his stick from Frederic and that the hit wasn't deliberate. I'm skeptical about it. Surprisingly, no penalty was called during the play, even though the referee was in close proximity to the players.


Regardless of intent, a penalty should have been given. Personally, I believe this action deserves at least a fine, and possibly a hearing. The Rangers secured a 7-4 victory in this game. Considering the Department of Player Safety's tendencies, it wouldn't be unexpected if Trouba faces no consequences.
