Do you guys think this needs to be looked at?
I'm on the fence on this one. It does not look that bad but it definitely reminds me when Volchenkov got suspended last year for sticking out the elbow.
EDIT: He stuck out his knee also, this deserves at least a fine.
He doesn't stick his knee out, he is just turning because he's following the puck. Looks to me like he was trying to avoid any contact so he wouldn't be slowed down from getting to the puck, but they were too close and it happened too fast so he wasn't able to avoid him. Everything about this seems accidental to me, no need for any supplementary discipline. You can maybe make the case for a minor penalty but even that is up for debate.
