Video: Gustav Nyquist vicious high stick on Jared Spurgeon

gustav nyquist vicious high stick jared spurgeon

Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist deliberately hit Minnesota Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon in his face with a stick during their Sunday game.



The play came in the first period after Spurgeon knocks down Nyquist with a cross-check along the boards. Nyquist loses his cool and uses his blade to spear Spurgeon in the face.

Nyquist received a two minute minor for high-sticking. Spurgeon left briefly and then returned to the game. The NHL’s Department of Player Safety will likely review the play.

Should Nyquist be suspended?
