Egor Korshkov has been suspended by the AHL for one game for a boarding incident in the Marlies game on December 1. He will not play in tomorrow night’s game.
He was penalized at the time with a double minor for boarding and roughing from the shoving match than ensued. There wasn’t a very good video of it, and the AHL streaming service was poor that day, so I don’t see any clips of it online.
Meanwhile, earlier in the game, this happened:
It was a flying elbow... pic.twitter.com/1d4WHUFzUC— Wipe the slate, clear the canvas part 2 (@RodBlanchard) December 1, 2019
Which was indeed called high-sticking, and attracted no league attention. Teemu Kivihalme, the victim there, had to leave the ice for concussion protocol. From a high stick.
Korshkov’s hit was very right on the numbers, and very close to the boards, so the boarding call seems legitimate.
