This is the extended video that one of the reads Rushmore suggested that I put up. This video give a better view of the Boome Jenner hit on Sweden's Jesper Petterson. There is also some analysis from TSN's Bob McKenzie. While I agree that the hit is a suspendable hit, there is no doubt about it, I am still not convinced that this hit is worthy of a three game suspension. I think that a two game suspension would suffice to say the least.
Like Bob McKenzie said in the video, in the National Hockey League anything after half of a second is considered a late hit. So, yeah, you can't hit someone after the half second, I get that, but I also think that the IIHF is taking into account that Jenners has a reupuation of being a hard hitter, I added a hit from last year's WJC. Boone Jenner hammers Finland Defenseman Olli Maatta, during a game between Finland and Canada during the 2012 IIHF WJC.

Heading into the 2013 World Junior tournament, Team Canada had a boon to ask of the IIHF- namely, to keep Boone.
But such will not be the case after Canadian forward Boone Jenner received a three game suspension from the IIHF Monday for his hit on Swedish defenseman Jesper Pettersson during an exhibition game on December 22nd. The hit earned Jenner a five minute major and a game...
Another tough break for Team Canada. The IIHF has suspended Oshawa Generals forward, Boone Jenner, for three games on Monday for his late hit on Swedish D, Jesper Pettersson. It doesnât matter that the international incident happened during a meaningless exhibition game. Jenner did the crime, now heâll serve the crime.
Pettersson suffered a broken wrist and a dislocated...
Apparently this hit by Canada's J.C. Lipon on Tomas Mikus will get an extra look by the International Ice Hockey Federation and there is a chance that Lipon could face supplementary punishment. That would be a big loss for the Canadians since they are already short handed with the loss of Boone Jenner who was suspended for three games by the IIHF. apparently, Mikus was none too...
