Found October 09, 2011 on Goon's World:

This incident happened during last night's Wild and Blue Jackets games apparently Columbus Blue Jackets head coach Scott Arniel was less than pleased that PMB only got a double minor and Bouchard has already had a call with the NHL.
It looked like a baseball swing in live action, but the Wild contended Bouchard’s stick was lifted into Calvert’s face.

The Jackets didn’t buy it. Bouchard was given a double-minor, but the Jackets wanted a five-minute major.

“It’s definitely an attempt to injure,” Arniel said. “Our whole bench saw it. Their whole bench saw it." [Blue Jacket Extra]
After looking at this high stick do you think it's worthy of a suspension? Is the NHL going to suspend each and every infraction that happens on the ice? I think this was a blatant high stick but probably not worthy of a suspension.
