Batherson’s All-Star dream derailed by ‘dirty,’ ‘dangerous’ elbow by goalie | Sportsnet
As he pursued the puck-carrying defenseman around the Sabres net, Ottawa Senators star Drake Batherson was blindsided by a flying elbow from Buffalo goaltender Aaron Dell, sending Batherson twisting into the boards.
“Quite frankly, it was just a bulls--- play,” said Senators captain Brady Tkachuk, who had words with Dell the moment it happened. “What happened was unnecessary and dirty. You just feel for (Drake). He’s put in so much work to get to where he’s at. It definitely sucks.”
Aaron Dell ended up receiving a three-game suspension, because, well... he is a repeat offender, after all. Remember this?

That has added up in a big way.”
