Colorado Avalanche Cale Makar has been suspended 1 game for interference against Seattle’s Jared McCann.
Cale Makar came in with a very late hit on McCann, as the play had been already blown dead. McCann hit his head against the boards and was slow to get up, this is very unlike Makar as it was a dangerous and dirty play.
Makar was only suspended 1 game because he has no prior history of being suspended or fined, and there was an injury on the play.
This means Makar will be out for a key Game 5 in Colorado.
Jared McCann has been ruled out for Game 5, will likely miss more time due to injuries sustained from the hit.
