It's the same in NHL, don't try to play martyrs.
Except for the fact there is no way that is a 3 game suspension in the NHL.

They might have given him 5 minutes because an injury caused by a penalty, but the NHL focusus on the hit. Shoulder to shoulder, no elbow, and didn't leave his feet.

There's no doubt the hit was late, unnecessary, and a bit stupid, but let's not pretend the NHL and IIHF handle these matters in the same manner.
