    Default Matthews DTD out of ASG, no Suspension

    January 22, 2020
    Matthews (wrist) won't play in the All-Star Game but will travel to St. Louis for the event, so he won't face a one-game suspension, Sportsnets' Chris Johnston reports.

    Since he'll be in St. Louis for the event, Matthews won't face the typical one-game suspension for opting out like veterans Alex Ovechkin and Marc-Andre Fleury. Matthews will receive acute treatment for a sore wrist over the weekend, Johnston reported, and he's expected to be good to go when the Maple Leafs return to action Jan. 27 versus the Predators.

    Sounds like nothing major and he is not expected to miss any action other than the ASG.

    treatment for a nagging injury.. shouldn't be a suspension.

    I still want to know why this game isn't played outdoors.

    The All-Star Game should be THE WINTER CLASSIC.

    Take it to non-NHL cities to grow the game. Gives players a bit of novelty getting to check out a different city as well.

    I see what you're getting at, combining 2 novelty games but outdoor games usually have poor ice. Not great for a game made to display high-skill hockey.

    dude had like 16 sog in his last 2 games. He's hurt, but no way does he miss NHL games because of this.

    He's got a minor injury. He's still going. He likely checked it with the league before stating he wasn't going to participate.

    The league is fine with players skipping the actual game/skills portion of the event with injuries, even minor ones, as long as they show up to interact with the fans and do interviews.

    Ovi, MAF and others could’ve done the same but I imagine they’ve been to so many that they just can’t be bothered and couldn’t care less about losing a game worth of salary to suspension.

    I get it. They know the event, they know their bodies, they know the season, they know the cost. The benefits to what really matters outweighs the cost so they do it. I have zero problem with it. Gives the kids a chance anyway.
