Calgary GM ‘vehemently’ disagrees with suspension for Lucic

3 novembre 2019
Brad Treliving, the general manager of the Calgary Flames, is making it very clear that he disagrees with the two game suspension for his player, Milan Lucic.

“We’ve got the utmost respect for George Parros and the Department of Player Safety, but on this one we vehemently disagree,” Treliving told Sportsnet.

“I thought the play was handled by the on-ice officiating staff correctly last night,” Teliving added. “I saw a player who poked, jabbed, whacked, speared the goaltender. I think 31 teams around the league, if you do that, there’s going to be a reaction.”

Lucic sucker punched Blue Jackets rookie Kole Sherwood in Saturday’s 3-0 Flames win. The punch was in response to Sherwood jabbing his stick at Flames goalie David Rittich looking for a rebound to a shot. Lucic was given four minutes for roughing and Sherwood was given two minutes for slashing on the play. After knocking Sherwood to the ice, Lucic jumped him and attempted to land more punches before being pulled off by Columbus players.

According to the NHL's Department of Player Safety, its suspension was based on Sherwood not being given the chance to defend himself. In its decision, DoPS said Lucic and Sherwood were not engaged in mutual combat and revenge is not an excuse for illegal actions.

“I don’t think it falls to the level where Milan is sitting out for the next two games,” Treliving said. “We support our player 100 per cent. We want our players to support each other, back each other up and we felt that’s what Milan was doing in this case.”

Did the league make the right call with the two game suspension for Lucic?
