Boston Bruins standout defenseman Charlie McAvoy has found himself in a tricky situation following a controversial hit in a recent game.

McAvoy was slapped with a match penalty for delivering a high hit to the head of his opponent, Oliver Ekman-Larsson. The hit has stirred conversations about potential disciplinary measures, including the possibility of McAvoy receiving a suspension.

This incident sheds light on the NHL's unwavering commitment to player safety and its strong stance against dangerous plays. While McAvoy is known for his aggressive style of play, and it's a trait that's often celebrated, this particular hit appears to have crossed the line, causing concerns about the safety of fellow players.

With the league now reviewing the play, Bruins fans and hockey enthusiasts are waiting with bated breath for the decision regarding whether McAvoy will be subjected to a suspension. The outcome of this review could have significant implications for both McAvoy and the team.
