The player was not penalized for intent to injure. He was penalized for roughing and given a game misconduct. I don't think that there will be any USA Hockey inquiry; the IHC director was there and was speaking with the HC from IHC but I don't think either was going to pursue it any further.
I don't know about the other incidents with the kid but I did see the IHC incident and he should get more than a game misconduct.
I know if my kid did something similar and flipped off the parents as he went off the ice, he wouldn't see the ice or the outside of his room for a long time.
"Well, the world needs ditch diggers, too"
We need a complete video review and slow motion breakdown of the infraction to properly gauge the severity of said infraction and ascertain if there was indeed an intent to injure.
Points of emphasis -
Hand position on the stick i.e. baseball bat hand grip or sickle hand grip?
Swinging motion of the stick i.e. axe chopping motion or bat swinging motion?
EHF should appoint a blue ribbon committee lead by a Brendan Shanahan to investigate.
Merrimack/Gallant arenas don't have LiveBarn...
TG having a tough go against IHC this weekend. They got caught cheating at the 2008E level. Games ended in tie 2-2 but were found to be using a 2007 goalie after the fact. Game was reversed and TG forfeited 1-0. HAHa- cheating at the 7/8 year old level.
And the EHF site ha now posted a player misconduct section on the home page.
What do you mean got caught. The 08 goalie was late and the 07 goalie filled in until he got there. Maybe they should have just forfeited so no one got to skate. Or better yet turn the net down. F'n morons.
No, you play 6 f'n skaters till your lazy ass goalie gets there. Oh wait, that might have you losing by 6 instead of 4. f'n moron.
I agree with the six skaters. That way maybe this guys kid could score on the goalie less net.
Better to play than not. Everyone needs to chill out about who is doing what or what kids look good. Our kids are 8 years old....just let them play and have fun. Hopefully at the end of the year all of the kids will develop into better players.
