Tyler Myers Gets Match Penalty For Disgusting Hit On Joel Armia

The Montreal Canadiens absolutely steamrolled the Vancouver Canucks in a 7-3 victory. In the final minutes of the third period, Tyler Myers of the Vancouver Canucks destroyed Joel Armia of the Montreal Canadiens with a dirty hit to the head.

There's no doubt the NHL Department Of Player Safety will be calling Myers tomorrow. Some say head contact is inevitable for a player who is 6'7", however, he crouched down and made the hit in an upward direction. Armia left the ice on his own accord, but he has been diagnosed with a concussion. His expected return date remains unknown. Myers has been suspended twice in the past in 2012 and 2014 for boarding and checking to the head. It's been 7 years since his last suspension, but the league may take this into consideration when deciding his inevitable suspension.
