NHL rescinds automatic suspension for Bruins' Chara

NHL.com

TORONTO – The National Hockey League announced today that it has rescinded the automatic one-game suspension for Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara.

At the end of the third period, Chara was assessed a minor penalty for instigating, a major for fighting and a game misconduct under Rule 47.12, resulting in an automatic one game suspension, pending review.

The League has reviewed the incident and rescinded the automatic suspension under Rule 47.22, which states: "the suspension shall be served unless, upon review of the incident, the Director of Hockey Operations, at his discretion, deems the incident is not related to the score, previous incidents in the game or prior games, retaliatory in nature, ‘message sending,' etc."

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
