WJC: Jenner Ejected for hit on Pettersson

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
