Claesson’s night ended after a very questionable hit.

After Fredrik Claesson’s very sketchy hit to Noel Acciari in last night's 5-1 Bruins victory, the NHL Player Safety Department may unleash some extracurricular punishment on the Swedish defenseman.

The hit was clearly making principle point of contact with the head, while Acciari was vulnerable taking a pass from Charlie McAvoy. Tim Schaller did step in and fight Claesson afterwards, but the damage to Acciari had already been dealt. How many games of a suspension could Claesson get?
