Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau suggested that the NHL take a long look at a hit by the Kings’Jarret Stoll on Cam Fowler that knocked the defenseman out of the club’s 7-4 win and left him with an upper-body injury.
Fowler had to be assisted off the ice during the second period and did not return. Stoll drilled him headfirst into the boards and was not penalized.
The severity of the injury is not known but Fowler is expected to be re-evaluated on Sunday.
“He obviously is not feeling very well right now,” Boudreau said. “We haven’t determined exactly what it is. If you saw the replay, Stoll hit him pretty good from behind. And I can understand why the refs didn’t call it. One was getting taken out. There’s another fight going on.
“But surely, you know, I saw the numbers when Stoll hit him. It was right from behind. They have to have to look at that. He might be OK tomorrow or he might be out for a while.”
