As reported on the WHL website tonight. The suspensions in their entirety have been announced. Eberle one game, Leffler three.
The Pats plea to the league over a knee on knee hit on J.D. Watt from Zack Smith went unpunished after the Pats sent in $500 dollars and the tape - that's the fee to have the league review it, sort of a deterrent for teams not to go to the well too many times.
Watt was out for the ensuing powerplay after laying on the ice for awhile.
It's no fun being J.D. Watt right now. Every set of eyes in stripes is watching you. Insert Ryley Grantham or Frazer Mclaren.... Bronco fans would remember Brandon Tidball. Guilty before proven innocent goes with the territory with these guys. Granted Watt has more skill combined than these three players. But when you live by the sword.....
This time of year the WHL bad boys need to walk the line, or ride the pine.
Switzer is unavailable tomorrow night because of family commitments so we've recruited a big name colorman in his absence. Former Pats Head Coach and now Mr. Hockey in Swift Current Tim Tisdale will ride shotgun on the broadcast. Thanks Tissy. It should be fun...
