Jonatan Berggren may be suspended for a cross-check to the face of an opponent

This isn’t good, per the SHL (video included):

The [SHL] situation room has reviewed the games that were played in the SHL yesterday. The following players have reported to the Swedish Ice Hockey Association’s disciplinary committee, which will consider the matter during the day.

Jonatan Berggren, Skellefteå AIK

With 12:24 remaining in period 2, Skelleftea player no. 48, Jonatan Berggren, skates with the puck through the entire neutral zone and is checked when he enters the attack zone. The puck goes down to the goaltender. Djurgarden player no. 50, Tobias Ekberg, sticks out his stick against Berggren to protect the goal. Berggren then cross-checks Ekberg in the face with force. Ekberg cannot protect himself against cross-checking.

Berggren’s going to get a game or two for this one.
