While working to gain puck possession, the skating lane of the opponent involved a right turning pattern. At approximately the same time as the opponent began his right turn pattern, Ali Wukovits also changed his skating lane to his left, which created a head on approach to make contact. Ali Wukovits, in his left turning pattern, extended his left knee. While his left knee is extended, Ali Wukovits attempted to make a body check. In missing the opponents body, a knee to knee contact occurred. Ali Wukovits, in attempting to make a body check, holds the responsibility to make the body to body contact and avoid the knee to knee contact. It was noted that the opponent did return to play.
