As the NHL attempts to eliminate unnecessary violence from the game, the phrase "repeat offender" has become a hot term.

Patrick Kaleta was suspend five games for this hit on New York's Brad Richards, a hit that may not have drawn a suspension if Kaleta weren't already on the league's hit list for his headbutting tendencies.
