Oshie went down hard but it didn't seem like that hard a hit. If there is a suspension, I would hope it isn't severe.

Slow motion always makes these look worse than they are, giving the impression the offending player could have avoided the contact.  Malkin sppears to more attempting to protect from an impending hit as opposed to initiating contact.  Two players coming at each other at high speed....stuff happens.  While a player has a duty to prevent head hits, he is obligated to himself to protect himself.
