Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

 

Delisle-Houde and Rogers suspended

Photi Sotiropoulos

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Disciplinary Prefect suspended today Moncton Wildcats left-winger Patrick Delisle-Houde for 5 games and Cape Breton Screaming Eagles defenseman Connor Rogers for 10 games for incidents that occurred during games played on February 18th.

Here is the rationale that led to Patrick Delisle-Houde’s suspension:

The player at fault:

  • Hit his opponent who was no longer in possession of the puck.
  • Made contact simultaneously with his body and head.
  • Did not try to avoid partial or total contact.
  • Was at his first offence.

His opponent:

  • Did not see the player at fault coming and therefore couldn’t protect himself.
  • Was injured on the play.

Here is the rational that led to Connor Rogers suspension:

  • Even though the player at fault was gliding, he had a certain speed.
  • He extended his leg to hit his opponent.
  • The contact was done with force on the knee.
  • He was at his first offence.

His opponent was injured.

The decisions were rendered after reviewing the videos of the incident, gathering the testimonies from the players and the organizations involved, reading the officials’ reports and consulting the independent committee in the matter of disciplinary sanctions.

The videos of the events will be available soon.
