In a recent matchup between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Ottawa Senators, a shocking incident unfolded as the game neared its end.

Ridley Greig's attempt to score for the Senators ignited a controversial moment. Leafs defenseman Morgan Reilly responded with what seemed to be a high cross-check, sparking outrage from both teams and catching the attention of the NHL's Department of Player Safety.

Initially slated for an in-person hearing, Reilly's discussion with the league was shifted to a phone call due to weather conditions near the NHL head office.




In a surprising turn of events, Kevin Weekes reported that Reilly has been handed a 5-game suspension by the NHL Department of Player Safety.


Now the question looms: Did the league's decision hit the mark?
