Foligno says he 'felt sick' watching replay of high hit on Bellemare; will have hearing Monday

10 novembre 2019
Nick Foligno of the Columbus Blue Jackets says he's much less worried about a possible suspension from the NHL as he is about the health of Colorado's Pierre-Edouard Bellemare. Foligno says he was sick to his stomach after watching the replay.

"I actually didn't know I hit him in the head at all," Foligno told reporters after the game. That's why I was kind of reacting the way I did, and then I saw the replay. There was no intent to hit him like that at all. I'm trying to line him up at the time, and he kind of turns back and makes that play and it just happens so fast. I felt sick to my stomach when I saw that I hit him in the head. It's an unfortunate collision. My main concern is that he's all right, and I got word from their locker room that he was feeling all right."

Foligno received a game misconduct and five-minute charging major for the hit. Colorado would go on to win 4-2. You can see the hit below.



It appears Foligno will face supplementary discipline for the hit. The NHL's Department of Player Safety has announced a hearing will take place Monday.
