WATCH: Blackhawks' Andrew Shaw ejected for head butting Brock Nelson
Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw head butted New York Islanders forward Brock Nelson on Tuesday night. He was ejected from the game and could be suspended.
The whole thing started when both players were involved in a battle along the boards that included a couple of cross-checks from Nelson as the play continued on away from them.
Shaw responded by head butting the Islanders forward, which you can see at the end of this clip here as Nelson gets knocked to the ice.
Along with the game misconduct, Shaw also received a five-minute major penalty. The Islanders failed to score on the power play.
You should probably expect Shaw to get a phone call from the league regarding this incident and perhaps some additional punishment.
Nelson remained in the game, but Shaw has been suspended in the past, getting a three-game banishment during the 2011-12 Stanley Cup playoffs when he charged Arizona Coyotes goalie Mike Smith during their first-round playoff series.
