Forward Garnet Hathaway was awarded a game misconduct at 9:21 of the third period for boarding defenseman Jarred Tinordi from behind and into the wall during the Washington Capitals’ game against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Sunday.

Tinordi was bleeding in the nose area and left the game. He did not return and the Bruins were awarded a five-minute power play as a result of the hit.

Hathaway has been suspended only once in his career. Though, that was for spitting on Anaheim Ducks (now Nashville Predators) defenseman Erik Gudbranson on November 18, 2019. He was suspended three games by the NHL. The 29-year-old has not been suspended by the Department of Player Safety, who will likely announce later on Sunday if Hathaway will get a hearing.

A scrum broke out after the hit.

Capitals head coach Peter Laviolette was asked about the play following the game.

“It looked to me like he was lining him up for a hit. The player was somewhere around the goal line and turned at the last second. I don’t think that he finished it with a ton of force, I think he let off of the hit, it ends up going to a review and five minutes.”

The Capitals are back on the ice on Thursday when they begin a three-game set with the Islanders.
