Last night, Kevin Shattenkirk laid a large and legal hit on Bobby Farnham. The Devils were losing and frustrated, and Farnham made a poor life choice - he went after the first Blues jersey that he saw, which was being worn by Dmitrij Jaskin. He levelled him with a high hit, and received a interference major and a game misconduct. Alex Pietrangelo and Kyle Brodziak were on him in a heartbeat, and the hit spurred a fight that saw Ryan Reaves level Jordin Tootoo with a punch (and a couple after the fact punches that shouldn't've happened).

He's about to receive more from the NHL Department of Player Safety:

How long he'll get is anyone's guess. Since Jaskin returned to the game later, chances are good that the punishment won't be as steep as if, say, Jaskin left and didn't return. The Blues haven't released any further info on Jaskin; as of right now, it's probably safe to assume that he's ok.
