Busting someone open and a sucker punch to the head has lead to a suspension for former NHL enforcer Donald Brashear, who's now playing in a senior men's league in Quebec. The Ligue de hockey senior du Lac au Fleuve has announced that Brashear, who plays for Blackjack de Wendake, has been suspended for two games for punching an opponent in the head and being the aggressor in the fight. He also received another game for punching another opponent in the head, for a total suspension of three games. Here's video of the incident.
Brashear wasn't the only person to get in trouble for the incident. It was noted that supporters of the opposing team, the Chalets Flamand de St-Ambroise., were throwing objects on the ice and the team has received an official warning because of it. There was also a "partial suspension" given to Charles Duchesne of St. Ambroise for a punch thrown at the head of Brashear before the incident started. It appears that may have been the catalyst for the whole thing.
Brashear played over 1000 games in the NHL, and it had nothing to do with his offensive prowess. Brashear was an enforcer who was expected to defend teammates and get under the opponent's skin night after night.
