WJC: Jenner Ejected for hit on Pettersson

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

Since we have nothing else to talk about...how about this hit that led to Jenner's ejection and possible suspension? I think it was pretty late. The puck was across the ice already, on an international rink no less.

Jump to 3:30 for the hit.

Haha, "feet are on the ice." Look at where the play is. I didn't even see it the first time because I was focusing on the puck.

Punish the action, not the result. It was a late hit, no doubt. Penalize him for the act of hitting someone late, not the result of him getting hurt, which he didn't have control over.

I agree, but it seems that is SOP for most leagues.

While I fully agree with you, you can't forget some other facts:

- exihibition game

- repeat offender

I am sure if this would have been the first time, he would have gotten away with a minor maybe(!) major penalty but thats about it.
