Scott Walker is automatically suspended as of right now, pending the National Hockey Leagues ruling on it. Antonio Brown Jersey
. Very simply, take a look at the game sheet: 17:13. Its the last five minutes of the game, Walker got two minutes for instigating, a five minute major and a ten minute misconduct. You get an instigator in the final five minutes and that player gets a one-game suspension and the coach is fined $10,000. But it always gets reviewed by the NHL to determine if it fits the criteria of what the spirit of the rule was when they put it in. That is, to prevent message-sending for the next game in response to something that happened earlier in the game, or just general mayhem that the NHL doesnt want to see. So it will be very interesting to see whether the NHL says, "You know what? It was a sucker punch and were automatically suspending him one game so lets just leave it intact," or will they say, "You know what? Thats not really what we had in mind when we put the instigator rule in and the one game suspension for the last five minutes," so it might get rescinded and Walker might get nothing. As strange as this may seem, theres the culture of the NHL and theres the culture of fighting in the NHL. And that culture says that when Scott Walker grabs you and rears back, you dont leave your hands at your side and you dont take a punch in the face, as Aaron Ward did. Yes, its blaming the victim to the nth degree and thats not right in normal society but its the culture of the NHL. It really boils down to what the league decides to do with the one game suspension, or if they believe that supplementary discipline is required. But based on Jordan Tootoo, Matt Walker, and things weve seen over the course of the year where guys have gotten the draw on the other guy really quickly and popped a guy in the face, they havent been suspended. Im not even sure Walker will get a game by the time its all said and done. Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey
