Many of you have been asking the question, and it seems we officially have the answer.

Normally, when a player is suspended by the NHL, they are summoned for a meeting (either by phone or in person) by the Department of Player Safety the following morning.

The suspension is then announced around dinner time.

A suspension for Sammy Blais following the hit on Jordan Harris?




Let's remember that Blais received a five-minute major penalty for the following action:



In short, the Department of Player Safety has been completely silent on this matter, and the game between the Canadiens and the Blues has been over for well over 24 hours.

Therefore, it can be considered that Blais will not be fined and will not be suspended.

He wasn't even called by the league to justify his action.

Do you believe this is the right decision from George Parros and the NHL's Department of Player Safety?

Blais, 27, has accumulated seven points in 41 games this season. (25 penalty minutes)

As for Jordan Harris, we are still waiting for news on his health status. He seems to have suffered a concussion.
