GIF: Alex Edler catches Tomas Hertl with headshot

Late in the second period of Thursday night's game between the Canucks and Sharks, Canucks defenseman Alex Edler caught a stooped Tomas Hertl in the head with his shoulder.

Edler was suspended for two games last season after running Mike Smith, so he would be considered a repeat. He was also suspended by the IIHF for a knee-on-knee hit on Eric Staal during the World Championship tournament this past May.

While there was no penalty called on the play, could a suspension be forthcoming? Judge for yourself:
