Here’s Patrick Burke of the Department of Player Safety explaining things:

It’s the same story here as many other NHL suspensions for illegal checks to the head. Trouba made Stone’s head the main point of contact and should have taken a better angle to deliver the hit through the Senators forward’s body. A clear cut violation of Rule 48.

The two-game ban means Trouba will be donating $33,333.34 to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Ottawa begins a four-game road trip Tuesday in New Jersey and Stone did travel with the team, according to Bruce Garrioch, but there has not been an update given on his condition.
