This is the extended video that one of the reads Rushmore suggested that I put up. This video give a better view of the Boone Jenner hit on Sweden's Jesper Petterson. There is also some analysis from TSN's Bob McKenzie. While I agree that the hit is a suspendable hit, there is no doubt about it, I am still not convinced that this hit is worthy of a three game suspension. I think that a two game suspension would suffice to say the least.
Like Bob McKenzie said in the video, in the National Hockey League anything after half of a second is considered a late hit. So, yeah, you can't hit someone after the half second, I get that, but I also think that the IIHF is taking into account that Jenners has a reupuation of being a hard hitter, I added a hit from last year's WJC. Boone Jenner hammers Finland Defenseman Olli Maatta, during a game between Finland and Canada during the 2012 IIHF WJC.

The team Canada WJC will be without forward Boone Jenner, has been suspended three games by the International Ice Hockey Federation for this late hit on Sweden's Jesper Petterson.
For his efforts on the play, Jenner was given a five minute major for charging and a game misconduct. While the hit was a violent and unneeded hit, three games seems to be a bit stiff. What do you think?
According to the Toronto Star, the Swedish defenseman Petterson suffered a broken wrist and a dislocated shoulder, as you can see by this video, the Swedish defenseman was carried off of the ice on a stretcher.

This is an amazing goal by Mikael Granlund it's simply one of the best of the year. I am not sure I can do Grandlund's goal justice by trying to describe it. I hope the Wild get him in a uniform next season right away because this kid is the real deal. Granlund was big for team Finland during the IIHF World Championship.Granlund is 9th in scoring with (2g-6a-8pts) in 8 games for team Finland.
