Video: Leo Komarov crushes Johnny Gaudreau

Johnny Gaudreau might have a few cobwebs to shake loose after receiving this devastating hit from Leo Komarov. Gaudreau was collecting the puck along the boards and had no idea that Komarov was rushing in to deliver a huge check.

Gaudreau had to head to the dressing room after this hit.

This check falls into the “unfortunate but clean” category where you hate to see another player injured, but the hit doesn’t clearly break any rules. Gaudreau had his head down and got run. There may have been a bit of contact with the head, but it wasn’t the principal point of contact.
