Winnipeg’s Adam Lowry will have Player Safety hearing for boarding Oliver Kylington

In the aftermath of the 2019 Heritage Classic in Regina, some news from the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety. Winnipeg Jets forward Adam Lowry will face a hearing on Monday for his boarding incident at the end of the second period with Calgary Flames defenseman Oliver Kylington.

Here’s the hit in question:

Kylington was obviously in a good deal of discomfort. To be blunt: there was really no reason for that hit to take place. Kylington barely missed any time – he was likely evaluated during the intermission – but the riskiness of this hit is likely why Player Safety wants to have a chat.
