Boone Jenner suspended 3 games by IIHF

Boone Jenner received a three-game suspension from the International Ice Hockey Federation for a charging incident last week.

Jenner, a Columbus Blue Jackets prospect, is supposed to play a key third-line checking center role for Canada. He was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct penalty for charging after a late hit on Swedish defenceman Jesper Pettersson in the second period of an exhibition game Dec. 22 in Helsinki.

Pettersson was diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder and fractured wrist and will miss the World Junior Championship.

The IIHF based its decision on a video review of the hit, which it ruled was late and delivered with no intention to play the puck, and with Pettersson being in a vulnerable position.

Jenner will have to sit out Canada's first three games of the WJC: Dec. 26 against Germany, Dec. 28 against Slovakia, and Dec. 30 against the United States.

Quote of the Day

I think the thing about him, No. 1, he's a competitive guy. We have no issues as far as him fitting in here with this group. No question he's going to be hungry. I think whenever you look at your back end, it's a mix-type thing, and I think [there are] things he can bring to us. He's very mobile, and even though he's not big (6 feet, 201 pounds), he certainly competes. He's a smart player.
