    Lias Andersson Suspended Four Games by IIHF

    IIHF suspends Swedish players, coaches for WJC ceremony conduct

    https://www.tsn.ca/iihf-suspends-swe...duct-1.1074058

    The IIHF announced Wednesday that it has handed down multiple suspensions to players and coaches from the Swedish National Junior team for their conduct during the medal ceremony at the 2018 World Junior Hookey Championship in Buffalo in January.

    Forward and team captain Lias Andersson received a four-game suspension, while forwards Axel Jonsson and Jesper Boqvist, goaltender Olle Eriksson Ek and defenceman Rasmus Dahlin each received two-game suspensions for the first two games of the 2019 World Junior Hockey Championship in Vancouver and Victoria.
    After Sweden's loss to Canada in the gold medal final, four players took their silver medals off and kept them in their hands for the remaining ceremony, while Andersson took his off and tossed it into the stands. The coaches took off their medals and put them into their pockets for the rest of the ceremony.

    The IIHF maintains that doing so violated Championship Regulations Article 5.5.8 of the 2018 IIHF Ice Hockey World Junior Championship, according to which the silver medals are placed by IIHF representatives around the necks of the players and team officials and "have to be worn around the neck in respectful manner for the duration of the closing ceremony and the following post-game mixed zone and media conference procedures."

    Why did it take so long for them to come to this decision?
    Didn't this happen months ago?
    LGR!

    Forward and team captain Lias Andersson is suspended for the first four games of the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship.
    The suspensions will not go into effect for any player or coach participating in the upcoming 2018 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship
    Dont think it matters - he wont be playing in the WJC next season, anyway

    Not really. Only Kazakhstan and Denmark get eliminated in pool play, every year.

    Symbolic. He won't even play again, so he won't be serving this judgement.

    No it's not. This only applies to next years World Juniors, and half those players will be in the NHL and not going to the tournament.

    I don't think Andersson is even eligible to play those games, even if he wanted to.

    He's not. Most pointless and stupidest suspension ever I think.

    Would the IIHF still uphold this suspension if/when he was selected to play in the World Hockey Championship?

    I was hoping to get people a little worried, but mods changed the subject.

    A total "ooohhhhh look at us, we matter" type of decision.
    Utterly redundant and a waste of everyones time.

    The medal rounds don’t count. It goes by birth year. Go look at how many 97’s played last year. Trust me

    I didnt find a single swede or american that was 97. Not any one of the top goalies or top scorers either. Alex Nunn (the guy posting all the gifs from the tournaments on twitter) also said that Lias is not eligable for next year, but I dont know. He would not play either way.

    Regardless of suspension, hope he learned his lesson. That's not leadership, it's immaturity.
