I don't know how I feel about this. It looks to me like a regular check by a bigger player on a smaller player, the issue being the smaller player had his head forward and so even a clean looking check can have the head as principal point of contact.

Jake Gardiner had surgery, is fully cleared, has made a full recovery and is ready to play hockey— Sara Civ (@SaraCivian) June 2, 2022

I know Gardiner wasn't the most popular Leaf during his time here but man what a rough go for him the past few years. Was almost completely injury free for most of his career (missed a total of 8 games in 5 NHL seasons before his last one with the Leafs). Final season here and he almost kind of out of nowhere started to have back issues late in the season that kept him out for some games and really hampered his play. He kept struggled with that back (and also hip) problem throughout his time in Carolina to the point where it kept him out of the entire 21/22 season.

He has 1-year left on his deal with a $4.05mil AAV. Hopefully he's able to get his career a little back on track.
