The most important word uttered by NHL VP of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan in his video announcing the 3-game suspension of Mark Fistric of the Dallas Stars? "Charging."
The NHL suspended the Stars defenseman for three games for his hit on charging New York Islanders forward Nino Niederreiter last Saturday, costing Fistric $16,216.23. There was no penalty on the play...
