Sam Bennett takes the honor as the first suspension of 2022 after a hit to the head of Canadiens ahead Cedric Paquette.
Bennett, 25, received a 3 game suspension for an unlawful check to the head. In the video below it looks as if he went for the hit with his shoulder and stuck Paquette within the chin.
Paquette did now not return to the sport after the hit. Bennett changed into not penalized on the play and completed the sport with two dreams inside the Panthers’ five-2 victory over the Habs.
