It wasn’t looking any better after the game with Frank Seravalli of TSN tweeting out this photo:
Crazy how much Corey Perry’s chin resembles the outline of #nhljets Ben Chiarot’s butt-end. #NHL is reviewing the incident. No call on play, could’ve been a match penalty. Perry needed 20 stitches, including some below top layer of skin. pic.twitter.com/VfWOzNbwqz

We spoke about it on today’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show and we felt it was only going to result in a fine.
Shortly after the show ended the Department of Player Safety tweeted out: “Ben Chiarot fined $3,763.44, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for butt-ending Anaheim’s Corey Perry.”
