Jarret Stoll Of The Kings Suspended For One Game After Hit On Sharks' Ian White (Video)

Multiple sources are confirming that Jarrett Stoll of the Los Angeles Kings has been suspended for one game by the NHL for an illegal hit to San Jose Sharks defenseman Ian WhiteDavid Pollak of the Mercury News reported the suspension that most were expecting first. There was immediate speculation that the hit would require disciplinary action by just about everyone at all involved with the game. CSN California's commentary team immediately talked about the no-call on the hit, and Twitter was going strong about how Colin Campbell would not like the hit.

The hit occurred in the first period of play, and the Sharks seemed stretched thin when White did not return for the remainder of the game. White didn't require a trip to the hospital, but head coach Todd McLellan isn't particularly optimistic about White's return for Saturday's game. He didn't skate on Friday, but they are not yet ruling him out.

Stoll will miss Saturday's game two at HP Pavilion as the Kings try and even the score, already down one game with an overtime loss on Thursday. Below is the video of the hit (uploaded by Fel0096)
