FORMER CANUCK BRENDAN GAUNCE SUSPENDED BY SHL FOR BLATANT CROTCH SHOT (W/VIDEO)

APR 14, 2021  (8H28)      TIM TUCKER
Brendan Gaunce, a former first-round pick of the Vancouver Canucks (26th overall in 2012), has found himself in trouble with the disciplinary committee of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). Gaunce is currently taking part in the SHL playoffs with Vaxjo HC, but will sit for the next two games after a pretty blantant crotch shot to Färjestad's Victor Ejdsell in the third period of a game on Tuesday. Gaunce was given a five-minute major for slashing and a game misconduct for the play.


Gaunce spent five seasons with the Canucks, but was not made a qualifying offer as a restricted free agent in 2019. He signed with a one-year deal with the Boston Bruins as a free agent immediately, but would spend most of his time in the minors, playing just one game in the NHL in 2019-20. He signed with Vaxjo before this season began after not getting an offer from any NHL teams. Guance has done fairly well with Vaxjo, recording five goals and 12 points in 18 regular season games.
