Boone Jenner Suspended 3 Games For Hit on Pettersson (MOD WARNING #422)

CAN F Boone Jenner has been suspended for 3 games for his charge on Swedish defenseman Jasper Petterson in an exhibition game on December 22nd, Petterson seperated his shoulder and broke his wrist on the hit, knocking him out of the tournament. This suspension will keep Jenner out of the line-up until New Years Eve against the Russians, the same team that Jenner got suspended against in last year's WJC for spearing Evgeni Kuznetsov.

I think this suspension is a bit too much from the IIHF, yes it was late and unneccessary, but the hit itself was clean, Petterson was admiring his pass and didn't keep his head up, I would be okay with 1 or 2 games, but 3 seems a bit overboard.

What do you guys think?
