Jacob Trouba could be looking at league discipline for this questionable hit.

During Sunday night's game between the Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets, the Jets' defenseman delivered a high hit to the head of Sens' forward Mark Stone. Stone turns his head to pass the puck off as h enters the Jets' zone. He gets the pass away but gets clobbered by Trouba, who makes clear contact with Stone's head.

Stone suffered a concussion in September, and he will no doubt be monitored for another one after this hit.

Trouba was assessed a two-minute miner for an illegal check to the head on the play, much to the dismay of Senators' head coach Guy Boucher.

However, the NHL's Department of Player Safety may not deem this punishment harsh enough.
