The NCHC has suspended one-game Mavericks forward Justin Parizek for his dirty hit on Drake Caggiula. I thought at the time, that this hit was going to get another look by the league. Originally, coach Brad Berry wanted five minutes for the hit, but the on-ice officials only gave him a two-minute minor penalty. The question is, why didn't the on-ice officials make the call on the ice. I do not have video.
I applaud the NCHC for their consistency in dealing with supplemental discipline. They seem to be cleaning up messes for the on-ice officials. The NCHC officials aren't the only ones having trouble.
Currently, the NHL is having to go back and officiate the game via video ex-post facto. College hockey isn't the only ones. That being said, the NHL could learn a lot from the NCHC.
