VIDEO: Discipline coming for Jarret Stoll hit?

Is there league discipline coming for this hit by Jarret Stoll?

I don’t see the issue. However, Drew Remenda just told us on West Coast Bias that he thinks the league may review the hit and dole out some discipline. We’ll see.

Stoll was suspended for one game during the 2011 Kings-Sharks series after a check from behind on San Jose Sharks defenseman Ian White. Then, last year, Raffi Torres was suspended for a hit on Stoll.

Also, you can listen to Remenda’s comments for yourself tomorrow when we post the via a free replay of West Coast Bias right here on MayorsManor.

  1. Don’t see why, I have seen far worse not even called

  2. Historyguy says:

    Please…shouldn’t have even been a penalty. That was as clean a hit as they come!

    • Clean as they come? An elbow to the head is never clean, clearly you hold bias on this one.

  3. Colo King Fan says:

    Oh geez, remenda said something with a sharks bias.. will wonders never cease. Friggin homer.

  4. ElLayKINGS says:

    i love all the whining from the team that employs the head seeking elbow better known as raffi torres. I can’t wait for Doug wilsons pandering press release to try and save face after stoll gets nothing or a small fine in the worst case scenario! Double standard much?

  5. Ok so what was wrong with that?

    • It is not for the hit, it would be for the forearm/elbow deliberately delivered to the face/chin of Vlasic.

  6. Zaptastic says:

    Hits to the head have to be punished or many of the best players will see their careers shortened due to concussions. Stoll’s elbow to the of Vlasic was deliberate and needs to be punished. If not, I guess the Sharks should go headhunting on the Kings and take out Quick.

  7. While Ive been surprised by the number of soft call the refs made in that game, I would be stunned if there was anything additional on that even though the head did go in to the boards. If the league looks for intent they will have to note that Stoll raising his arm on the hit is done to lessen the blow on Vlasic and it appears Stoll is trying to go around him to play the puck. That he hit Vlasic in the head is a bit of a fluke and he clearly didn’t run him. The principal point of contact looks like the body as Stoll could have totally laid him out cleanly from the side if he wanted to by changing his route just a little and dropping his shoulder. He did not because he was trying to play the puck.

    • The issue was not with the hit, it was the deliberate elbow to Vlasics head while he was down on the ice. Re-watch the video.

  8. Hawk Valentine says:

    Hit to head left his feet stepped on back of his leg. Should be at least six games but because he plays for big market team ie LA Boston Det NYr Pens he will get nothing. When Torres legally bit Stoll in Shoulder last year he got the rest of the series off to help ensure LA and other 4 Recent cup wimners were in final four. How can you say you saw nothing wrong? You are scum if you think leaving your feet targeting the head and stepping on someone is doing nothing wrong. Nkw Sharks have lost theor best dman and all Kings had to do was kill a 2 minute minor for a dirty disgusting hit. But hey Dirty dustin Brown is your captain. I hope Hertl score the goal that eliminates you! Or maybe Raffi.

  9. The original hit by stoll was a clean hit.. The reason the ref gave him the roughing was. When stoll push the sharks player head down

  10. And hawk stoll never left his feet nor did he stick out his elbow or target the head in any shape or form. And talking about Torres hit last year. 1. Raffi Torres left his feet 2.first thing that came in contact with Torres shoulder was stoll head. 3. Stoll was injured in that play so you comparing Torres hit to stoll is completely wrong. This hit was in no comparison to Torres

    Go Kings Go!!!!

  11. So a deliberate elbow to the back of the head that didn’t happen in the initial hit, Stoll turned back and threw the elbow to the head is not a problem huh? I would have to say if Torres just farted on a guy he would have been tossed out. Elbows to the back of the head with injury, how can they not at least review it?

    • Exactly, he clearly elbows Vlasic in the back of the head then looks up to see if the Ref caught it or not. Stoll is such a dirty player, he needs to get suspended. Vlasic is one of the Sharks best defensemen and now he’s out because of that dirty hit.

  12. Kyle, what are you watching? Stoll left his feet. That elbow to the hit was absolutely vicious, intentional, and unnecessary. Even Shanahan stated that Torres’ initial contact was not to Stoll’s head. Get real.

  13. One more thing Kyle…’Stoll “pushed” his head down’? “Pushed”??? No, you are not biased at all, are you?
