Yeah, he's a terrible hockey player and a goon, but he has zero suspension history. That was his first non-fighting major of his career. Head hits get 5 games for first time offenders, usually.
I don't see why it would be any different for him.
It sucks, but that's the way it is. I wouldn't get your hopes up about the NHL throwing the book at him. He would probably win an appeal if they tried.
His sole purpose on the ice is to fight and stir up crap. He will be made an example of because the NHL doesn't want his kind in the league.
Not saying I agree with that reasoning, but don't be shocked if he gets the book thrown at him because of what he is.
