The Victoria Grizzlies will be without Jaden Schmeisser tonight for the deciding 5th game of the series, as he has been suspended two games for his blow to the head on Hunter Stewart in Game 3 here in Victoria on Monday.
Schmeisser appeared to leave his feet, and follow through with his elbow to Stewart's head. With both Strand and Gosselin knocked out of action on hits on Saturday night, it was certainly disheartening from the Dogs side of the puck to at least feel that players weren't being protected.
Unfortunately during the game the four officials didn't see it as a penalty - of course it's a fast, hard game as I was saying last night and they can't catch everything. It's good to know that when the Officials during the game might not be able to get every call right, there is still the league to answer to in the name of protecting players.
