By his actions during the Anaheim Ducks' 4-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks last night, Ducks D James Wisniewski must believe you can hit anyone on the ice whether they have the puck or not. I don't think there's any other explanation for his decision to take a flying charge at former teammate Brent Seabrook, who did not have the puck (nor did he just release the puck).
The Blackhawks defender was dazed on the play and he didn't return to action. I would think he's questionable for tonight's game against the Los Angeles Kings.
