- And while all of this is happening in the big leagues, Philadelphia 2012 first round pick, Scott Laughton, is probably getting suspended for this blind-side hit. Laughton playing for the Oshawa Generals of the OHL skated in front of the Ottawa '67's Daniel Walsh and lowered his elbow right into the side of his head, where he stayed down for several minutes. Laughton was eventually thrown out of the game and is most likely awaiting word on whether he can play in the team's next game. OHL commissioner, David Branch says that a hit of this magnitude normally carries a suspension of ten games maximum.
