Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Connor Murphy was given a major penalty and subsequently ejected from Sunday's clash versus the Tampa Bay Lightning for a hit to the head on Erik Cernak.

Here's a look at the collision:

Cernak stayed down on the ice and went straight to the Lightning's dressing room. There is no update yet on his status.

The NHL's Department of Player Safety is likely to review the play. Murphy has never been suspended in his eight-year career.
