Newbury Suspended Four GamesNovember 22, 2011, by
Press release from the AHL:
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League today announced the following suspensions:
Connecticut Whale center Kris Newbury has been suspended for four (4) games as a consequence of an illegal check to the head of an opponent in a game vs. Bridgeport on Nov. 18.
Newbury will miss Connecticut’s games Wednesday (Nov. 23) vs. Portland, Friday (Nov. 25) at Bridgeport, Saturday (Nov. 26) at Springfield and Nov. 29 vs. Hershey.
The Rangers don’t need another call up right now, but it is unlikely that Newbury will be called up until his suspension is over. Players have been moved around leagues and that has delayed suspensions, but I don’t expect that to be the case this time around.
