The incident occurred at the 1:56 mark of the middle frame, when Aube-Kubel came laterally across the ice and made contact with Foote (son of longtime NHL defenseman Adam Foote), who was trailing the play.

Aube-Kubel has been previously fined by the NHL for a kneeing incident, and in 2018, during his time with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms (Philadelphia Flyers) of the American Hockey League, was suspended three games for an illegal check to the head.
