NHL Player Safety gives Foligno a b******* punishment for knee-on-knee hit

During last night's Blue Jackets versus Wild game, Wild forward, Marcus Foligno delivered a violent knee-on-knee hit to Jakub Voracek. The hit ended Voracek's night as he was unable to return to the game, despite returning to the bench.


This was Foligno's second kneeing incident of the season as he was also suspended for kneeing Adam Lowry earlier this season.




While these knees are definitely different, but this still remains a second incident where Foligno used his knee as a weapon. Many expected Foligno to be suspended, and he likely should have been given a more severe punishment. Instead though today it was announced that Foligno has only been fined for the incident.


The level of inconsistency remains astounding as the NHL Player Safety continues to deliver puzzling results on almost every suspension this season.
