NEW YORK -- Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith has been suspended for one game for high-sticking Los Angeles Kings forward Jeff Carter during Game 3 of the Western Conference Final in Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 4, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 7:58 of the second period. Keith was assessed a double-minor penalty for high-sticking.
I challenged him to a goalie fight when we chatted before the game, but he didn't want to go. It was strange to see him at the other end of the ice, but I'm sure he felt the same way looking down at our end.
