"It’s a play that I don’t like," Stars head coach Lindy Ruff said, according to the Dallas Morning News. "It’s a dirty low play that the league doesn’t like, and I want to see the league deal with it. They took out one of the best players in the league, and it’s something that has to be dealt with and I’ll let them deal with it."
Kulikov has been offered an in-person disciplinary hearing by the NHL Department of Player Safety, meaning he could be suspended for more than five games. He has been suspended indefinitely pending the hearing.
Seguin is the Stars' leading scorer, with a total of 59 points. He also leads the team in goals with 29.
The Stars also placed Patrick Eaves on injured reserve with a concussion after he was hit in the face with a puck on Friday. Ales Hemsky, who was also injured Friday, could play again as early as next week, Ruff said.
