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.

Good decision. Can't have that going on unpunished. Was worried nothing would happen since it didn't result in injury.

Not to condone using your skate as a weapon, but it's funny what the league picks and chooses to review for suspension.

Was hoping only one game, but oh well.

Anyone remember how many games Shayne Corson got for kicking Eric Cairns back in 2002? I know he was out for Game 7, but I don't remember if he got anymore time.

It was just one game. He was back for the next series against Ottawa.

Stomp on a guy's foot....get 2 games....try to run a guy's head through the boards and put him out with a concussion...1 game.

Sounds about right.

one of the dirtier plays I've seen in a while. All you people need to stop bitching about the Stoll hit, if White wasn't hunched over it would have been just like every other hit that came from behind the nets in the game.

1 game would suffice, but a dirty play nonetheless!!

skate stomp

Maybe Bobby got confused for a moment and thought he was Chris Leben in a UFC fight.

NHL as usual doesn't know what the heck they are doing. Both plays were dangerous and they both should have received much more than they got. Skates are sharp and you can easily sever tendons and permanently cripple someone, it wasw a deliberate act not a last millisecond decision, he purposedly stomped on someone. At least 10 games. Idiots running this league.

No justification for something like that. He knew what he was doing. Despicable play, and I would have liked to see a longer suspension. Hard to argue that the league doesn't have a double-standard when stuff like this happens.

I don't get how some people think one game would be justified when Ryan deliberately stomped on Blum's leg with his skate...clearly intent to injure.

This...nothing against Stoll who is generally a clean player but man the NHL makes some questionable calls
