Rangers prospect Braden Schneider ejected for high hit, likely WJC suspension coming

Braden Schneider played about a half period tonight before getting a 5 minute major for a high hit that led to his ejection. He will likely face further disciplinary action from the IIHF as well.

The hit occurred 8:40 into the first period when Schneider lined up Jan-Luca Schumacher for a body check. The timing was right, but his shoulder was high and made contact to the head of the prone forward. Fortunately, Schumacher was able to leave the ice on his own accord.

Canada steamrolled over Germany 16-2, but will be without one of their better defenseman for at least one game. They will play Slovakia tomorrow at 6 PM ET.
