Player: Carl Hudson
Number: 2
Team: Cardiff Devils

During the game Cardiff Devils v Braehead Clan on 20/09/2014, The Department of Player Safety has automatically reviewed the match penalty that Hudson received at 11:42 in the second period. The Department of Player Safety has reviewed this incident and has come to the following conclusions...

• The check was a clean hard body check on a player who is control of the puck and eligible to be hit.
• At the point of impact Hudson is planted on the ice and the momentum of the hit causes his feet/foot to leave the ice.
• The head is not targeted nor is it the principal point of contact in the hit.

The Department of Player Safety has removed this penalty from Hudson's records and there is no suspension.
