    Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Haason Reddick Cardinas Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. He received a five-game suspension plus the remainder of the pre-season. On Wednesday, Henrik Zetterberg fell down and came over the top with his stick. The lumber struck Dan Hamhuis of Vancouver in the mouth cutting him profusely. Both incidences were very similar, no? A player out of control and swinging his stick recklessly. But why was Zetterbergs forgiven if he should have been accountable for his stick as well? Thanks for any clarification. Art We Art: Thank you for your question. The most obvious similarity on the two plays you reference is that injury resulted to both Sam Gagner and Dan Hamhuis; albeit in varying degrees of severity (broken jaw vs. substantial cut to lip). Beyond that I see considerable differences that exist when considering the potential for player suspension. I would argue that Zack Kassian was in control of his stick when he swung it with purpose in an attempt to make some form of contact with Sam Gagner once the Oiler forward stopped hard to avoid the body check that Kassian was in the process of delivering. I dont believe for a second that Zack Kassian intended for the swing to catch Gagner in the face and break his jaw. None the less, that was the unfortunate result of the wild stick swing used as part of an intended, but missed body check. Kassian received the appropriate double minor penalty on the ice at the time of the incident. The careless manner (video link) with which Henrik Zetterberg brought his stick down hard as he was rolling over to regain his feet following an awkward tumble falls within the spirit and intent of the high-sticking rule. Rule references: 60.1 (Players must be in control and responsible for his stick) and 60.3 (When a player carries or holds any part of his stick above the shoulders of the opponent so that injury results, the Referee shall assess a double-minor penalty for all contact that causes an injury, whether accidental or careless, in the opinion of the Referee.)  Henrik Zetterberg should have been assessed a double minor on the play but no call resulted from the high-sticking infraction. Any of the four Officials could have made this call as a result of the injury to Dan Hamhuis. While the call on the ice should have been the same in both cases there are distinct differences between these two plays when supplemental discipline is being considered. Henrik Zetterberg was in a prone position on the ice and the momentum of rolling onto to his knees included his stick travelling over the top accidentally striking Dan Hamhuis. This lack of responsibility and control by Zetterberg was careless for sure but not worthy of a suspension. Zack Kassian on the other hand had his skates under him and I submit swung his stick intending to make contact with his opponent in some manner.  The deliberation of this act and the severity of the injury that resulted are worthy of a suspension.

Read up on all the questions and answers, and put in your own two cents on our popular Your Call feature.Madison, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - The Wisconsin Badgers officially welcomed former Pittsburgh boss Paul Chryst as its new head football coach on Wednesday. Chryst, a former Wisconsin assistant, assumes the position which was vacated by Gary Andersen, who became Oregon States new head coach last week. Hes the 30th head coach in program history. I was contacted or interviewed a number of coaches about this job. The head coaching position at UW is highly sought after. Im thrilled to be able to welcome the entire Chryst family back to Madison, said athletic director Barry Alvarez. This is a big moment and I couldnt be more grateful and honored and appreciative of such an opportunity, said Chryst. There is a spirit at UW that is undeniable and to be a part of it is something you dont take for granted. The 49-year-old compiled a 19-19 record in three seasons at Pitt, which will play Houston in the Armed Forces Bowl on Jan. 2. The Madison native has maany ties to the Badgers as he was a quarterback from 1986-88, a tight ends coach in 2002 and offensive coordinator from 2005-11. Haason Reddick Womens Jersey. As great as today is ... I dont want it to be the best day, added Chryst. With this, comes a great motivation to do the state proud. Chryst has also worked as a tight ends coach with the San Diego Chargers from 1999-2001 and has served as an assistant at Oregon State, Illinois State and UW-Platteville. Last week, Alvarez, Wisconsins former head coach, announced that he will coach the Badgers for the upcoming Outback Bowl against Auburn on Jan. 1. Im ecstatic to be able to bring Paul back to the Badger family. He was the first person I called when I knew we would have an opening, said Alvarez. He brings tremendous experience, both as a head coach and offensive coordinator, and knowledge of our program to the job. He is one of the best offensive minds I have ever come across and I think his consistent results show that. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
