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.
