Bobby Ryan Suspended Two Games
TORONTO – Anaheim Ducks
forward Bobby Ryan
has been suspended two games for a kicking incident against Nashville Predators
defenseman Jonathon Blum
in Game #2 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series on April 15.
"The actions by Ryan were both reckless and dangerous," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell
. "While it was fortunate there was no injury to Blum on the play, the act of using your skate in this manner is unacceptable."
The incident occurred at 16:35 of the third period. No penalty was assessed on the play.
Ryan will miss Game 3 and 4 of the series.
