Foligno suspended for hit on Bellemare

11 novembre 2019
The NHL's Department of Player Safety has made it's ruling on a hit Nick Foligno of the Columbus Blue Jackets made on Colorado's Pierre-Edouard Bellemare Saturday night. Foligno will sit for the next three games for his actions. You can view the official ruling below.

Filigno said he was sick to his stomach after watching the replay of the hit.

"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."
