Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Tony DeAngelo has actually been suspended 2 video games for spearing Tampa Bay Lightning forward Corey Perry, the NHL revealed on Wednesday.

During Tuesday night’s video game in between the Flyers and Lightning, Perry slashed DeAngelo at the end of the play. After the whistle, DeAngelo circled around back to Perry and speared him in the groin, which prompted a significant scuffle around the Philadelphia defenseman.

At the time, DeAngelo was whistled for a significant charge and a video game misbehavior.

After evaluating the play, NHL Player Safety has actually chosen to suspend DeAngelo for 2 video games. In a video, the league described why DeAngelo’s offense necessitated a suspension.

“It is important to note that DeAngelo does not engage with Perry in any prior to spearing him, choosing to strike while Perry is not looking at him,” the league stated in its description. “What causes this play to rise to the level of a suspension is the premeditated nature of the foul against an unsuspecting opponent well after the whistle, the area of the body the spear was delivered, and the force of the blow.”

While he serves his suspension, DeAngelo will miss out on roadway video games versus the Carolina Hurricanes and Pittsburgh Penguins.

DeAngelo has actually played a popular function in his very first season with the Flyers, particularly on the power play, and he has actually been among the group’s most efficient gamers. In 59 video games, DeAngelo has actually scored 10 objectives while including 24 helps.
