Devils defenseman Brendan Smith has received a suspension for slashing Travis Konecny after the play had stopped.

Smith Faces Suspension for Slashing Konecny


In yesterday's game, Devils defenseman committed a slashing offense against Travis Konecny after the play had ceased, leading to a hearing with the NHL DoPS today. The DoPS deemed this action as unsportsmanlike, resulting in Smith's suspension. There could be debates about the severity of the punishment, considering the post-whistle timing, while others might argue it was provoked by Konecny's earlier cross-check.



Nevertheless, Smith will be sidelined for a period and will incur significant financial loss due to the suspension.
