Wow. Hockey goes to great lengths to let teams work out their frustration/issues with each other (I mean, what other team sport allows players to start duking it out with each other?). But deliberately shooting a puck at the other team's bench? Waaaaaay too far. Risking injury for not only players and staff, but you never know how a puck is going to bounce; it could have hurt a spectator too. I'd say that the suspension for the remainder of the season/playoffs is adequate league-wise, but is there space for the other team (or more specific the trainer that was injured) to press charges? Especially if it was intentional. Thoughts?
