We might see our 14th suspension of the year soon because of the hit by Aaron Rome on Ducks rookie Devante Smith-Pelly. Rome delivered an elbow to the head of Pelly half-way through the second period. Rome was ejected for the hit and Pelly, who looked rattled by the hit went to the locker room but returned shorty after.
Rome is already considered a repeat offender because of his hit on Nathan Horton in the Cup finals for which he was suspended four games. I don't see why not this can be a suspension too.
My Insight: I think this hit is definitely worthy of a suspension. Four games sounds just about right.
