Nino Hit, Cammalleri Slash

UPDATE: About 2 minutes after I posted this, it was announced Cammalleri will serve a one game suspension for the slash. I still think three games would have been better but at least they didn’t shy away from suspending a high calibre player for opening night.

I’m sure Mike Cammalleri doesn’t to start off the 2010 season in the pressbox, but that might just be the case after his retaliation to Isles’ rookie Nino Niederreiter this past weekend. First video is the hit by El Nino…

…and now the payback by Cammalleri.

He has a meeting with NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell today and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if there was a suspension handed out. Not only is it deserved, but it would set the tone for the NHL season letting the players know this kind of thing won’t be tolerated.
