Like say we call him up, will he just get suspended for this? If so and he was a scratch, isn't it useless to suspend him?
I think the suspension is officially only for the NHL but the AHL tends to uphold these suspensions just for ***** and giggles.

regardless of how it all works, they should just have him serve it from the outset so we don't have to worry about it later on.

It looks like Eager is taking the becoming a player route.

Homer said he would serve it in the AHL if he is sent down.

Isn't he also technically suspended right now and would these games count as time served?

I thought you were allowed to play if it was still under review, no?

I would assume so. It's like that in baseball. I'd think the Flyers would hold him out in the meantime though out of good faith toward the league.

According to Wikipedia for Match Penalty.

The player is ejected from the game and is ordered to the dressing room immediately, and automatically suspended from the league until a hearing is conducted. There are two types of match penalties: a ten minute penalty for deliberate injury to an opponent and a five minute penalty for intent to injure. In each case, 10 minutes is assessed in the player's penalty records. Another player on the offending team serves the penalty for its duration and does not return to the ice until the entire penalty time expires.

I haven't seen any of the pre-season. But I've read a lot about Downie all through this site. Seems we finally have a ***** disturber

As long as Stevens is smart enough to keep him in check and use him wisely... I am so looking forward to this.

He may not intimidate but I guarantee you other players will know when he steps on the ice and play a little different to not get blindsided (except for those that want to beat the crap out of him). It's good stuff... as long as no one dies.
