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TORONTO – The National Hockey League announced today that it has rescinded the automatic one-game suspension for Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara.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The League has reviewed the incident and rescinded the automatic suspension under Rule 47.22, which states: "the suspension shall be served unless, upon review of the incident, the Director of Hockey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."
Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
