Joonas Donskoi “surprised” there was no discipline for the hit that kept him out two weeks



Joonas Donskoi doesn’t remember much about it. He knows he had the puck coming up right side, about to enter the New York Rangers’ zone, about to try and generate some offense for the Avalanche in a game at Madison Square Garden.

His memory is dark from there. What happened was, Donskoi took a big hit from Rangers defenseman Ryan Lindgren, a hit to the head. The rest of the night is mostly a blur, as concussion symptoms quickly set in on the veteran right winger.
