Dallas Stars center Martin Hanzal spent five minutes in the penalty box in the first period of Thursday’s game against the Nashville Predators, due to a major penalty assessed for his hit on Predators defenseman Yannick Weber.

Weber was reaching out for the puck when Hanzal skated across, catching Weber in the head with his left shoulder.

While Hanzal was given a major for his hit, he was not ejected from the game.
