SWEDISH GOALTENDER SUSPENDED FOR BETTING ON GAME IN THE SAME LEAGUE HE PLAYED IN

AUG 3, 2021  (13H39)      TIM TUCKER
A goaltender from Sweden has been hit with a lengthy suspension after it was determined he placed a bet on a game taking place in the same league he played in. Wictor Ragnewall, a member of the Troja-Ljungby team - which recently won a playoff that catapulted them into HockeyAllsvenskan (2nd tier hockey in Sweden) from HockeyEttan (3rd tier) - is not allowed to play or even train with his team until at least November of this year.

Ragnewall, 28, did not bet on a game he was playing in. However, he did bet on a match in a tournament his team was playing in to see who would get promoted to HockeyAllsvenskan for the 2021-22 season. That is against the rules for players in Sweden.

"Terribly sad for everyone involved to get this suspension but we just have to accept and resolve the situation," Troja-Ljungby sports director Daniel Håkansson said in a news release on the club's website. "I suffer with Wictor and he obviously feels that he put himself and the team in a bad position, but the rules are clear as to what applies. But it is only for Wictor to come again and be ready when his suspension is lifted in November."

In the release from his team, Ragnewall expressed is remorse for his bad decision.
