Blichfeld was ejected for the hit and will have a hearing with the player safety department today.

You never like to see one of the Leagues best talents leave a game like that but thankfully Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said after the game that MacKinnon appears to be doing good and they may have gotten lucky.
