I don't know. It looked like he was going to fall regardless. However, all the skaters know how these things go when they step on the rink. If they touch someone else and that person falls, whether caused by the touch or not, the refs are going to err on the side of DQ. I can understand it. Keeps skaters from initiating contact and trying to argue it was merely incidental.
