Banning him for 50% (or 43%) of the tournament does seem quite a lot.
EDIT: It's essentially because of the injury that Petersson suffered. If he gets up, Jenner only gets a 2 minute interference penalty. An injury is a huge deal to IIHF... so everyone's got to keep that in mind. Players will also try to embellish (or act like they are hurt) in order to get the refs to change a 2 minute penalty to 5 minute major. IIHF refs are pretty gullible in that regard.
