Dynasty child Nystrom break's opponent's leg
Looks like there's a good chance that Eric Nystrom won't get to step foot on Coliseum ice on Columbus Day.
Nystrom, who plays for the Minnesota Wild, is facing a "Shanaban" for this hit on Edmonton's Taylor Fedun as Fedun went back for an icing touch-up.
