ALEX GALCHENYUK CATCHES ADAM LOWRY WITH AN OBVIOUS HEAD-SHOT AT THE LEAFS' BLUELINE

APR 22, 2021  (20H05)      MIKE ARMENTI
Toronto Maple Leafs winger Alex Galchenyuk could find himself in some hot water after taking a run at Jets forward Adam Lowry while Lowry was engaged in a puck battle with Leafs captain John Tavares in the first period of Thursday night's Leafs/Jets game.

Galchenyuk was lining up Lowry near the Leafs' blueline to finish a check and caught Lowry forward up high, appearing to really rattle the 28-year-old forward, sending him straight to the Jets' bench to get some attention from the trainer.


It will be interesting to see what the league says about this one. Galchenyuk does appear to pull up on the hit a little bit and does appear to have a verbal exchange of sorts while still in close proximity after the hit, but there's no denying that the head was the main point of contact here.

Lowry did appear to be alright after the hit and was able to remain in the game to finish out the first period, however, he did not return at the beginning of the 2nd frame and is now confirmed to be finished for the night with an upper-body injury.

Galchenyuk was not penalized on the play.
