Griffin Reinhart 4 game IIHF suspension
Didn't see a thread elsewhere on this. Griffin Reinhart gets a 4 game suspension for his high stick on Vince Trochek in the semi-final. Personally I think 4 games is pretty excessive. I've watched the video a bunch of times, and while in real time it looks like he intentionally smacks him in the face in slow motion it looks like he's trying to whack the puck and his stick "rides up" Trochek's stick. Obviously intent is the sticking point here with no intent it's a 0-1 game suspension whereas with intent it's 3-4. Could be interesting if he has a 3 game IIHF suspension looming over him going forward. Could you be left off future Junior teams or World Championship teams because of it?
