Riley Barber to Serve One-Game Suspension for Fight (Video)


With 3.4 seconds left in the Hershey Bears game against the Laval Rocket, Riley Barber and Markus Eisenschmid dropped the gloves. It seems that the fight came as retaliation. Eisenschmid delivered a check on Travis Boyd as he was coming down the ice with the puck. On Saturday afternoon, the AHL announced a one-game suspension for Barber

The American Hockey League today announced that Hershey Bears forward Riley Barber has been suspended for one (1) game as a consequence of his actions in a game at Laval on Feb. 16.

Barber was assessed an instigator penalty within the final five minutes of the third period, resulting in an automatic one-game suspension under the provisions of AHL Rule 46.22. He will miss Hershey’s game tonight (Feb. 17) at Belleville.
