The Toronto Maple Leafs forward Leo Komarov will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday. This meeting is for an incident with the New York Rangers Defense man Ryan McDonagh during a game Thursday. They played at Air Canada Centre. The incident occurred at 18:58 of the first period. Kmarov was assessed a match penalty for an illegal check to the head. McDonagh remained on the rangers bench for the rest of the first period but did not return to the game. The following grounds are being considered for the supplemental discipline: Elbowing/ illegal check to the head. However, the department of player safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review. So basically this is saying a player from one team was an enforcer. He got a little to rough and made a bad play and hit another star player who went out of the game. For this reason they turned him into an organization that apply punishments to players who get too rough to keep other players safe. Now what will his punishment be? Probably being out for a few games and maybe at the very most for this a fine. Not much though.

So this blog is kind of special to me just because it is about John Scott. He is an underdog enforcer that jumps around from team to team and now I believe he is with the coyotes. I know he is in the minor leagues now. He played for the Black hawks a few years ago and everyone loved him there. He is a very good person and he did very well in the all star game. Now he is only in there because he was picked as a fan favorite. The actual NHL spokesperson asked him to step down because "he didn't deserve to be there". And he probably didn't but who were they to say? So it was amazing when he went out there and won the whole All Star tournament and scored a few goals doing it. He was also voted MVP in the game with actual stars. I like him and i'm glad he won the game and took his team to victory. I cannot believe the NHL did that to him and i'm glad he got to play and made them look stupid.
