NHL suspends Chris Wideman one game for headbutting Bruins’ Erik Haula originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

UPDATE (Thursday, Jan. 13 at 3:20 p.m. ET): The NHL has suspended Canadiens defenseman Chris Wideman one game for headbutting Bruins forward Erik Haula during Wednesday night’s matchup in Boston.

Here is the league’s suspension explanation video:

–End of Update–

The Montreal Canadiens were dominated by the rival Boston Bruins in a 5-1 loss at TD Garden on Wednesday night, and there might be more pain on the way.

Canadiens defenseman Chris Wideman will have a hearing with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety for headbutting Bruins forward Erik Haula, the league announced Thursday.

Anywhere from one to three games would be a reasonable suspension for Wideman. The league did not offer him an in-person hearing, so it’s hard to imagine a lengthy ban being on the table.

The Canadiens are back in action Thursday night versus the Chicago Blackhawks, so we might get a decision from the league later today.

The Bruins also return to the ice Thursday night when they host the Philadelphia Flyers.
