NHL posts French video explaining decision to suspend Mark Scheifele
The NHL Player Safety Department posted a video in French explaining their decision to suspend Mark Scheifele for 4 games. As we know, the Winnipeg Jets player assaulted Jake Evans in the last game. During the video we discuss rule 42 by saying: " Assault is the action of a player who, as a result of the distance traveled, violently defeats an opponent in any way. ».
Here is the reaction of several journalists and public figures:
I would have preferred 5 games, but the suspension (4 games) imposed on Mark Scheifele is a step in the right direction. Scheifele is a star player, he has no background. In the recent past, he would have gotten away with less than nothing. Hard blow for #Jets. #CH #NHL

The Canadian mentions that no one will comment on the decision of the NHL (suspension to Mark Scheifele). “We are concentrating on game number 2. Case closed. »Says Paul Wilson of #CH.

4-game suspension for Scheifele. If the #CH He really wants to make him pay for his bastard, all he has to do is prevent the Jets center from returning to the game by eliminating his team in 5. That would be the best way to make Scheifele's life miserable. #GoHabsGo

It will finally be 4 games of suspension for Mark Scheifele.
It's less than it should be but it's more than I expected. Considering that Scheifele is not a repeat offender and that these are playoff games (even if the logic is stupid) ...#Habs #Canadians https://t.co/ZzIUgg709N

4 suspension games for Scheifele. I was worried the NHL would be even less harsh, but I still think it's not enough to deter dangerous shots. The best sanction would be for the Canadian to prevent him from playing again by eliminating the Jets before Game 6.

4 games is a lot for a clean hit, eh Paul? 🤡

4 suspension games for Scheifele.
A former "tough guy" speaks out
To everyone on social media (including former NHL players) who said about Evans that he should have had his head up before Scheifele's assault

I expect a suspension of between 3 and 5 games for Mark Scheifele, who will defend himself to the NHL authorities at 14 p.m. He deserves a MINIMUM of 5 games. Let's see if George Parros will have the courage to go to 5. Knowing him, I would bet more on 4…
