Boulerice Still Suspended
TSN listed Jesse Boulerice‘s suspension as being finished on their set of transactions for December 12th. That is not the case.
To date, Boulerice has served 16 out of the 25 games on his current suspension according to Flyers beat writer Tim Panaccio. The Flyers have been shipping Boulerice back and forth from their AHL affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms in order to create room for call-ups since his punishment began.
According to the AHL’s transactions page, Boulerice was not recalled for Philadelphia’s contests against Pittsburgh and Montreal this week so the number remains the same.
It seems that TSN might just be counting down the number of games that have taken place since Boulerice was suspended by the league. Yahoo! Sports and CBS Sportsline both made a similar mistake when they ended Steve Downie‘s suspension one game early.
Boulerice will be eligible to play in the AHL starting this Sunday. The Phantoms play the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins that afternoon.
