Originally written March 20, 2013 on Busted Coverage:
Poor NHL rookie Eric Selleck. You might remember earlier today when we told you about Selleck’s debut last night against Carolina. His line: 0 points, 17 PIM & 1 KO. The problem is that he was the one who got KO’d thanks to the punching power of Kevin Westgarth. And now there’s more punishment for Selleck. The NHL reviewed last night’s fight and found that Selleck left the bench with the intent of starting a fight. That’s not a good thing. That triggered an automatic one-game suspension for instigating a fight in the last five minutes. The second game was added for leaving the bench during a legal line change. Westgarth, who was not engaged with any other player, dropped Selleck with two punches. Selleck will forfeit $5,945.94 and will sit out games at the New York Rangers on Thursday night and at New Jersey on Saturday. He is eligible to return Sunday at the New York Islanders. So to recap Selleck’s first NHL game: • No points • Knocked out once • 17 PIM • 2-game suspension • $6,000 fine Filed under: Hockey
