Phil Posted May 10, 2017 Share Posted May 10, 2017 An ugly incident at the IIHF World Championships has landed a Slovenian player a two-game suspension from the competition. During the second period of a game on Saturday, Slovenia’s Ziga Jeglic was going for a line change when he swung his skate towards the neck of Switzerland forward Thomas Rufenacht as he was hopping over the bench. It was an extremely dangerous play that could have resulted in a horrific injury but, thankfully, it did not. Still, Jeglic needed to face repercussions, and apparently a two-game suspension was deemed appropriate. http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/slovenian-hockey-player-skate-neck-kick-050817 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
