It wasn't a 'dirty' hit by old definitions, but it was an unnecessary one and he could easily have avoided to hit the head…so by the new rules it was illegal since they're supposed now to at least attempt not to hit the head…especially if coming from an angle where the other player can't see them. Had he hit the other side of Eller, his right shoulder, the blow would have been less spectacular but would have done the job just as well. There was probably never an intent to knock him out, but the intent was to deal a punishing blow and it worked a little too well…

But its deffinitely not in the same category as Shea Weber's hit last year when he tried to punch Zetterberg, failed then took his head between his gloves and smashed his face in the boards.
