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?
Jenner is lucky to still be playing in the tournament. If I was him I'd thank Santa for this early Christmas present.
