Scuderi fined for hit on Chimera

NHL Senior Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell said Los Angeles Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi has been fined for a low hit on Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jason Chimera Sunday.

"Scuderi went really low and I felt it was a clip," Campbell said Hockey Night in Canada Radio. "Fortunately, he didn't injure the guy. He did hurt him on the play, as far as receiving a cut. But he came back in the game, Chimera, so I didn't think it was a fair play and we fined him."

Campbell compared Scuderi's hitting style to that of fellow NHL defensemen Rob Blake and Kyle McClaren.

"He does hit guys with a hip check," Campbell said. "Rob Blake's name came up and Kyle McLaren's, but they hit guys with their rear ends and they hit them in the hips and they hit them hard ... [not] low."
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
