During Saturday's game between the Seattle Kraken and the Los Angeles Kings, forward Eeli Tolvanen collided with referee Furman South from behind.

At the time of the incident, the Kraken were on a powerplay, tied 1-1, in the middle of the second period. As Kings defenseman Mikey Anderson controlled the puck along the boards, Tolvanen moved in for a check. Although South managed to evade the play along the boards, he found himself directly in Tolvanen's path.

Attempting to reduce the impact, the Seattle forward pulled back, aiming to minimize contact. However, despite his efforts, he inadvertently drove the official into the boards.
