Schenn Suspended for Hit on Oshie


The NHL Department of Player Safety announced today that Brayden Schenn would be suspended for charging T.J. Oshie in game 6 of the first round of the playoffs.

Schenn will miss the first three games of ’16-17 regular season for his blow to the head on T.J. Oshie.

Schenn was widely criticized for his cheap shot, a cross check to Kuznetsov’s knees after play had ended late in game 4.

Oshie went after Schenn at the start of game 5 in retaliation for Schenn’s cheap-shot on Kuznetsov. The two traded blows :
