Nobody Suspends the Wiz

...or maybe they do.  For the 2nd straight season, Wisniewski is in trouble with the NHL.  This time for more than giving the finger.

<<NEW YORK -– Columbus Blue Jackets' defenseman James Wisniewski has been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing and the completion of a review by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for an incident that occurred in Friday night's preseason game in St. Paul, NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan announced today.

Wisniewski received a minor penalty for an illegal check to the head of Minnesota forward Cal Clutterbuck 20:00 into the third period.>>

Brad Staubitz of Minnesota has also been suspended indefinitely for an incident earlier in that game.

Shanny's getting busy!

I haven't seen anything regarding a potential suspension for Justin DiBenedetto for drawing an instigator penalty in the final 5 minutes of last night's game in Boston.  You can see Dibo's actions, following a hit by David Krejci on Ty Wishart, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-lAOwYh55Q&noredirect=1
