Maybe. Should you get a penalty for tapping someone on the shoulder pad with your stick?

It was high enough that it technically is high sticking ... but the embellishment to sell the call should be called as well

 

High-sticking is the name of two infractions in the sport of ice hockey that may occur when a player intentionally or inadvertently plays the puck with his or her stick above the height of the shoulders or above the cross bar of a hockey goal. This can result in a penalty or a stoppage of play. In the rules of the National Hockey League, high-sticking is defined as a penalty in Rule 60[1] and as a non-penalty foul in Rule 80.[2]

Rule 60 – High-sticking 60.1 High-sticking - A “high stick” is one which is carried above the height of the opponent’s shoulders. Players must be in control and responsible for their stick. However, a player is permitted accidental contact on an opponent if the act is committed as a normal windup or follow through of a shooting motion, or accidental contact on the opposing center who is bent over during the course of a face-off. A wild swing at a bouncing puck would not be considered a normal SECTION 8 – STICK FOULS NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE OFFICIAL RULES 2018-2019 88 windup or follow through and any contact to an opponent above the height of the shoulders shall be penalized accordingly.
