Slafkovsky, a rookie from Canada, has an earful to board the Red Wings’ Luff

Montreal Canadiens rookie Juraj Slafkovsky will undergo a hearing with the NHL’s safety department after being ejected from Tuesday’s win over the Red Wings for boarding.

The incident took place with just over five minutes left in the third period. When Red Wings forward Matt Luff tried to play a bouncing puck in the neutral zone, Slafkovsky got in the back and fell hard into the boards.

Luff was in distress on the ice after the hit, and Slafkovsky was called a game misconduct for boarding. After the game, Red Wings head coach Derek Lalonde told the media that Luff would not be back on the ice “any time soon.”

“The right call was made,” Lalonde said. “That’s exactly the kind of blow you want to try to avoid, precisely because of what happened.” A player was seriously injured.”

Slafkovsky, the first overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft, was playing in his 10th game of the season. He has three goals in these games.

The Canadiens play their next three games at home, including Wednesday night against the Canucks on Sportsnet and SN NOW.
