From the AP,
Canada’s Shea Weber was suspended Sunday for three games at the Hockey World Championship for hitting German forward Yannic Seidenberg in the head a day earlier.
“A three-game suspension in a tournament like this is awfully tough,” Canadian head coach Andy Murray said. “It’s the equivalent of a 40-game suspension back in the National Hockey League based on the number of games we’re playing here — but that’s what they decided and that’s what we’ll deal with.”
The Nashville Predators defenceman was ejected just 1:19 into Saturday’s Group C game, after forcefully elbowing Seidenberg in the chin as came through centre ice with his head down.
