The following grounds for potential supplemental discipline are being considered: illegal check to the head. The incident occurred at the :45 mark of the third period during a game Wednesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Air Canada Centre.
Lupul was assessed a two-minute minor for illegal check to the head following a check against Tampa Bay defenseman Victor Hedman in the neutral zone.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
