The New York Rangers and Nashville Predators got into a pretty wild game on Saturday night, marked by a couple questionable hits and a fight. While Nashville walked away with a 5-2 win, the Rangers walked away with a couple potential injuries to key players.

The below sequence saw Filip Forsberg lay an illegal check to the head of Jimmy Vesey that left him bloody and knocked him out of the game.

The vicious hit ultimately paved the way for a fight between Ryan Johansen and Brady Skjei.

The NHL Player Safety Department has announced that they have scheduled a hearing with Forsberg for the hit, and it is believed that he will likely incur a 2-game suspension, much like Andrew Cogliano did for an elbow to the head.

How many games do you think Forsberg should get for this hit, if any?
