Illegal hits to the head yes, but there is still no penalty for a clean hit, even if it unfortunately involves a shoulder to the head and an injury to the player being hit. If the form of the hit is clean, there should be no penalty or supplementary discipline on the play, unless it's a blatantly late hit.
