The IIHF Disciplinary Panel has issued a one-game suspension to Team Canada forward Anthony Mantha.
Mantha will miss Canada’s quarter-final game against Switzerland.
The suspension is due to a violation of IIHF Rule 124-Checking to the Head and Neck. The incident in question occurred on 21 May, at 29:31 in the 2nd period of the game between Canada and USA.
During the play, the puck goes deep into Canada’s defensive zone and is played into the right corner by the Canadian goaltender. Mantha and USA forward Colin White then raced towards the puck. Upon reaching the puck, White reaches out with his stick in an attempt to play the puck, at the exact same moment that Mantha prepares to make the check. White’s action of reaching for the puck results in him taking a low position.
