FIFTH KNEEING PENALTY THIS SEASON RESULTS IN A TWO GAME SUSPENSIONMonday, Mar 12, 2012
Spokane Chief defenseman Davis Vandane has been suspended two games by the WHL after being assessed his fifth kneeing penalty of the season on Saturday, March 10th in a 3-2 win over Kootenay.
Under the Western Hockey League's Seven Point Plan, when a player receives five kneeing penalties he receives an automatic two game suspension.
The 19-year-old will miss Tuesday's game at Seattle and Wednesday's home game versus the Kamloops Blazers. Vandane has appeared in 66 games this season and has 24 points, including three goals, and is +14.
