Ugly cheapshot to the head in Q's CIS

In a Trois-Rivières Patriotes games, in the CIS league of Québec, a really ugly cheapshot to the head occured yesterday.

That's wild. Very similar to Chris Van Laren when he played for STU, but with a little more intent to injure.

The lesson here is to not skate through the neutral zone with your head down.

Maybe that's what the lesson IS. What the lesson SHOULD be is that if you go head hunting for a player without the puck, you are gone for the rest of the season.

When the puck is nowhere near you? That's a BS lesson

I was there... that's as much as a cheapshot as a cheapshot can be.

UQTR's coach Hubert was outraged after (and during) the game. He wished for a season long suspension for that kind of hit, adding that if there were fights in the CIS, those kind of cheap shots would probably not happen.

He is probably right. The CIS would never allow that though.

Anyway is there an update on the injured player?

If the kid has his head up, he doesn't run into the pylon standing at the red line.

My intrepretation of the video is that Brock's Purvis didn't like the outcome of his original collision with UQTR's Plouffe, got up (maybe looking for a penalty call?) and was slow getting back into the play. When Plouffe came back out of the zone he wasn't watching for Purvis at all (he was fixated on the centre of the ice, which is a mistake) and the Brock player nailed Plouffe steaming along unawares in the trolley tracks with a cheap shot - to me an obvious retaliation.

I've never bought the "you have to keep your head up" argument, and certainly not in this case. Purvis should receive a multi-game suspension to reinforce the message that cheap shots are not allowed (especially when you can't have fighters settle the score). I don't know about a season-long suspension; I don't know what previous similar incidents in the OUA have drawn.

That was my take as well from looking at the video. I looked at the OUA rules and they don't have anything for a Match penalty. They do have suspensions from 1-3 games for Hit to the head, Attempt to injure.

I saw the play exactly as you and Freddt did ... retaliation. It was clearly premeditated, and not just a simple hit to the head - the puck was nowhere within 50 feet of him.

As far as precedent, a number of years ago Aaron Fransen of Queen's was suspended for 6 games (or so) for taking 3 or 4 baseball swings with his stick to the arm of Toronto's Tyler Middlebrook. So, there is some precedent to the OUA going beyond their standard suspension list in the rule book.

Ideally, something in the range of 10 games would be appropriate, but who knows.

Purvis got a 3 game suspension after the hit.

Well under the new regime in the AUS I guess that would have been at least a five-game suspension, maybe closer to 10.

You seem bitter about what the AUS would hand out foyle? I happen to think 3 games are not enough for the malicious intent that is obvious in the video.

It's possible that the 3 gamer is the default for a Match Penalty and more games will come upon review.

No, my complaint is not with the length of supplemental discipline in the AUS, but rather with the lack of transparency and the fact that now the head of the AUS is single-handedly setting the number of games for suspension seemingly without relying on any precedence. It is about the complete opposite of how the NHL now handles it.

Compared to an incident in the AUS that garnered a five game suspension last year in the playoffs, I think Purvis would have received a seven to ten-game suspension if that happened in an AUS game. Or no games. I feel we really don't know how the conference will react anymore (considering a certain Saint Mary's player with a reputation for head shots at Nationals escaped supplemental punishment for injuring a UPEI Panther recently ...)
