Slovenian Hockey Player Suspended After Kicking Opponent in the Neck with Skate


Recommended Posts


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.
